Autumnal Thanks ...

A dark and dreary day ... what else is a girl to do other than create and craft ... I've been quite productive today creating quite a collection of cards but I'm just going to sahre one with you this afternoon:

To start I used my gelli plate, stencils and acrylic paint to create the background panel - using autumnal colours.  I sponged paint through each stencil onto the gelli plate allowing each level to dry before lifting the whole print in one go using a buff coloured paint.  Once dry I die cut the panel and added it to a card base.  The sentiment was die cut 4 times and stacked and adhered together to achieve a chunky feel. 

I used:
CUTplorations - Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles and 'Thanks' dies
ARTploration stencils - Leaf Print mini, Leaves I, Autumn Falling and Leaf Print 4

I'm entering the following challenges:
