Autumn Colours

Today's card uses some autumn colours, even though here in New Zealand it is the start of spring.  However we have not had much spring weather this past week - lots of rain and wind.

This is for the following challenges:

Lollipop Crafts - Use eyelets or brads. 
Simply Scrapping Crafts - September Challenge - Distressing
Lily Pad Cards - Simon Says Stamps Presents a Resist Challenge
The Stamping Boutique - Birthday

Autumn Colours

The background is made by stamping wild honey and fired brick distress ink onto an acrylic block and spraying it with water.  I then stamped it onto card and let it dry.   After that I stamped my swirl stamp in chocolate brown over the top.  I mounted this onto brown card  and added the dragonfly brads.  Then I mounted it onto the beige card.  Before mounting it onto the white card, I added the brads in the corners.  I do seem to like making cards with lots of layers!
To finish off I added the Hero Arts Cling Flower which I had embossed onto white card with white embossing powder and coloured with fired brick and wild honey distress inks with my blender tool and then cut out.  Lastly I added the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.



  1. Your background is wonderful Angela. Love the combination of colours.

  3. Angela. I really like this blended inks technique you have been using. It looked great on the leaves and this background is really pretty!
