First signs of Autumn !

It's certainly starting to cool off here in the UK and the leaves on the trees are starting to turn which is what inspired me to make this card for my Katzelkraft DT project.

I blended DI over the background then stamped the leaves which had been spritzed with water. I then stamped over the same area using DI. The vertical strip is from an old book that I've blended DI over and then done some Spritz and Flick. The leaves are cut from Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap using the Tattered Leaves die and then I've blended DI over them. The main image is stamped onto white card then I blended more DI over it and some more Spritz and Flick !

I cut some more leaves from shrink plastic and then embossed them in the Tim Holtz Honeycomb EF. When they shrink it still leaves some of the pattern in the leaves, which you can just make out on the photo.

The stamps that I've used are the Automne Demie Plaque and are available exclusively from The Craft Barn in the UK and from Katzelkraft in France.

  5. Love the techniques you have used here Sue. It gives the whole thing a soggy Autumnal feel (in a good way!!!) Need to practice that embossing shrink plastic as mine removed the embossing. Must be doing something wrong. Hugs, Buttons x
