There are a number of challenges with an autumn theme at the moment so I have been playing with my distress inks and stencils.
First up I used a Clarity leaf stencil and sponged through with a range of distress inks before stamping a sentiment from Avery Elle in the centre. I covered the leaf back up and added some splatter to give a sense of the leaf blowing across the card. As this is a one layer card I shall link up at Less Is More's current one layer challenge.
While I was playing with distress inks I got another Clarity leaf stencil and added a selection of leaves to the right hand corner of the card base. Another sentiment from Avery Elle and a sprinkle of sequins completes the design.
I will link this card up at Time Out's current challenge inspired by the phrase, Autumn - the year's last, loveliest smile. This is my second entry :)
I should really get back to making Christmas cards.....
Thanks for stopping by!
A break from Xmas cards doesn't hurt, although this year I have tried to make less Autumn cards as I find I don't seem to send them! However these are Aurumn beauties and perfect blending and masking. Love the movement in your TO card and obviously the sequins, thanks for joining us xReplyDelete

Your stenciled leaves are so colorful, Sarah, and that splatter really does make the leaf look like it's blowing in the breeze.ReplyDelete
