Autumn Leaves




This is the next postcard in the monthly challenge over on UK Stampers Forum.  This months theme is Autumn.  I started by cutting a 6 x 4 inch card blank from mottled brown card.







The stamps are from Lavinia and are a set of three layered leaf stamps. All were inked and stamped with Adirondack dye inks in butterscotch, espresso, redcurrant & pesto in different configurations.  Once stamped they were dried with a heat gun and sprayed with cheap hair lacquer to seal the inks as the card will be posted as is to the recipient.


The letters spelling out 'Autumn' were pre printed and edged with black stazon ink before sticking in place with Glossy Accents.



Each of the letters were then covered with a coat of Glossy Accents to give them a raised glaze.  Once dry the card was edged with barn door Distress ink applied with cut'n'dry foam.

  6. Great job, love the colors! I like that you didn't overdue the fall colors. Not all trees turn to brilliant reds, oranges or yellows. Great background too.
