autumn card

soooo not my colours but i love a challenge :)

with all those autumnly colours i thought why not a autumn card 
using a leaf die i have had sitting around for just such an occasion
i placed them in a card in a box to get a 3d effect

 i sponged the outside using a stencil from the sheet of card that i cut the leaves from 
to make the coloured card i inked up a glass mat with the challenge colours,
spritzed it with water to smoosh it all together
and then laid the paper on top of it.
i dried it quickly with a heat gun
and then die cut what i needed out of the sheets

cheers ears

Very cool "autumnly" project, Clare! I love how you use up all the bits and bobs at hand. You've risen to the challenge beautifully; great card in a box. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink! :)

You are right these colours are very Autumn-y and you've used them in a brilliant way.
Thanks for sharing your creation with us at Just Add Ink this week.

All those wee leaves are just gorgeous Clare - you really captured that late Autumn feel when only a few leaves are still hanging on the trees! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

Hi Clare, very nice, I have a liking of things leaves. Where did the little leaf punch-outs / die come from? I have plenty of large ones but small leaves are hard to find/ Thanks, K xo
