Autumn ATC's

These three ATC's are my interpretation of an Autumn theme as part of a swap with a friend in America who I have been swapping with for a good while now.

The first was stamped directly onto orange base card with Versafine vintage sepia. I used the leaves set from the See D's range. I then hand coloured the leaves in Autumn colours with Inktense watercolour ink pencils before applying Versamark Pen to selctive areas and heat embossing with a range of embossing powders - clear, tapestry, penny copper and gold. I edged the card with a fine line of gold Krylon.

The second was made with two skeleton leaves which I coloured with Starburst Stains in yellow and brown before sticking to the plain white card with paper Mod Podge and allowing to dry. I gave them two coats. I then used various brown and green sprays from Sticky Fingers to colour the card and leaves. Finishing off with a copper spray and edging with dark brown Colorbox chalk ink.

The third used white card as the base with three applications of marigold yellow orange Starburst Stains from a dabber. I allowed these to dry and then stamped a leaf See D's stamp in brown pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then cut a strip of orange textured paper and punched leaves out of it at, mounting this over some green paper. This banner was then applied with glue to the top half of the card. Two lengths of chiffon ribbon were attached top and bottom of the leaf strip using double sided tape to adhere. The top ribbon was decorated with blobs of Stickles glitter glue in green. The edges of the card were finished with dark brown Colorbox chalk ink.

Hope you like them :-)
