Autumn Colours




Here is a little Autumnal creation I made and it fits the bill for the Less Is More Challenge for week 192 whose subject is 'Autumn's Bounty'

The colours of the falling leaves are amazing at this time of the year aren't they?






I used a 5 x 5 inch white card blank and low tack masking tape to produce the coloured stripes with Adirondack dye inks in Rust, Butterscotch & Oregano which I applied with Cut'n'dry foam.






I then used a couple of skeleton leaf stamps which I inked with Memento tuxedo black and stamped as shown





Final touch was to add the printed words, edged in black.
