The nights are drawing in and the temperature is dropping I guess that must mean Summer is over and Autumn has arrived. It seems fitting that there are a number of challenges around to reflect the change in seasons, so it seemed appropriate to join in and create a card with the flavour of the Autumn and here it is:
I thought I would switch things around this evening ... I usually put the finished card photograph first on my posts but I really wanted to showcase the detail of the leaves. The leaves started as a piece of water colour card that I liberally coloured with brushos. I then stamped the leaf images before die cutting and then blended the edges with distress ink (vintage photo). I then hand embossed them to add some definition to the veins. The sentiment is heat embossed on a piece of vellum - I added a piece of thread from some hessian just to add in some more texture.
