Another Autumnal Card
Almost finished decorating the spare room so time for some crafting again. The current Ready Steady Stamp Challenge is asking for the following 'ingredients' to be used.
1. Cream, Brown and Ochre
4. Distress Inks background used on glossy card
5. Autumn theme
I don't mind admitting that this card did not come easily to me, partly because I wasn't that keen on the colour combination, but I enjoyed the distress ink on glossy card technique which I had never used before. The panel on the right side of the card was made this way with Old Paper, Walnut Stain and Mustard Seed Distress Inks. Then I stamped on some leaves in a random way with a Rubber Stampede stamp and added the word October with some letters I found in an alphabet book. On the left side I stuck on a panel of hessian over which I mounted my tree image which is from Crafty Individuals. It was stamped on cream cardstock and matted onto brown Bazzill card and I used three small staples on one side. Just as it was nearly finished I smudged the ink and had to hide it with a small embelliscrap oak leaf which I coloured with the distress inks and glazed with Glossy Accents.
Please excuse the changing font, I changed it before I started posting but it reverted back halfway through for some reason. Think I have mentioned before that me and computers are not compatible. Thanks for looking.
