Autumn Colours

My DT card for our Stamping Sensations challenge this month proves I have been very good this year (so far) and am still using up all my old paper stash and snippets (smugly pats herself on the back!).
Our challenge is Autumn Colours and we're sponsored by Foil Play
 
Matted every layer onto a burnt orange card textured stock.

The tree stamp is by Rubbernecker - I simply love it. It allowed me to have a little inky fun with some inks and a water spray! Used a variety of DI inks in oranges/browns/yellow, spritzed it all with a little water and stamped! Dragged a bit of the colour about with a thin paintbrush.
Quite pleased with it!

Used some badly neglected bright orange brads from my stash and die cut some leaves from left over bits of card.
Sponged a brown DI over them whilst they were still in the die to highlight the veins.
Used a little bit of twine round the biggest leaf and wrapped some round the card.
Finished it off by attaching a stamped sentiment with a bright orange peg.
The inside is decorated to match.

  10. A fabulous autumn design, Viv! I love how you've done the tree, just beautiful! Oh, and well done for using up some old stash! I do keep trying to, but I never seem to have any more space in my paper drawer. I reckon it must be self-replenishing....
