A week gone...

So much for me having time to come and idle away in blogland!
A week has gone by since I last posted, although I have found time to do a few things at home.
I made lots of mess 😁😁 with Pixie Powders and Brushos on watercolour card and have made a couple of cards with some of the backgrounds.
We are currently enjoying a lovely spell of warm weather and I am loving watch the trees change colour.
This inspired this card really -
A variety of dies used on one of my inky backgrounds and they have a lovely glimmer to them in real life.
The paper behind the circle die is stamped in Vintage Sepia and the stamp is Hardwood from SU.

The sentiment is from Inkylicious, heat embossed in Copper onto a scrap of vellum and slipped behind the circle cut out.
A few Antique Copper Pixie Powder splashes onto the plain white card and a little brushing with Tea Dye round the edges and done.

Lots of Autumn themed challenges about -
Allsorts - Autumn Glory
Creative Moments - Autumn colours
Die Cutting Divas - Fall colours
Alphabet - N for Nature
Crafty Gals Corner - A/Fall
4 Crafty Chicks - Happy Fall Y'all
MAWTT - Fall colours

I hope the sun is shining wherever you are and as always, thanks for popping in to visit - I really appreciate you all. x

Oh Viv - this is just stunning!! I adore it - gorgeous Autumn colours and a brilliant sentiment. As always, a lovely card from you! You could add it to the new snippets challenge which starts tomorrow if you wish (I allow a little bit of back linking and you did use at least one scrap/snippet). The thing is, the prize is actually a couple of items you sent me not so long ago - so I doubt you'll be playing for them. But you can always just join in for fun of course :)

A stunning card Viv and I love your layout. The die cut leaves are coloured perfectly and they look so realistic. I also really like how you’ve stamped the sentiment onto vellum..........absolutely superb x

Jo said...

So gorgeous......beautiful colours & I love the sentiment x

MaryH said...

Just lovely! I like this layout very much, and the woodsy look of each of the background. The glorious color of your leaves just steals the show on this pretty card. The leaves really look like the fall colors I will see around my area soon. You had some great results with your brusho play. The copper & vellum is perfect as it doesn't hide the woodgrain behind it. TFS & Hugs

You have captured autumn in your card Viv!! Gorgeous design. Love the natural colour of your card base and the stamped woodgrain background through your circle aperture. But it's those amazing leaves that really make this card sing. Beaautiful fall colours. The copper embossed sentiment is just perfect for this design. xx

Love your take on the challenge at Alphabet, Autumn is for me the season og warm colours and abundant harvest, love the layout and colour of your leaves

brenda said...

This is beautiful Viv, always rather like a card with an aperture and your design on this one is both pretty and tactile, many thanks for joining in with our 'Autumn Glory' theme at Allsorts challenge.

Missed the game as we were out, but propbably a dcecent result given the other evening and yes the ACC did pay - I still find it a bit overwhelming that he's rached that position at a relatively young age!
