Autumn, the year's last...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A busy day today, editing and prepping video which will be live tonight over on my mixed media blog.

This is the last of my Autumn makes for this year.

I have used stamps and stencils from Clarity Stamp.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 cream square card with corners punched with x-cut corner punch.
2. The first layer I distressed around the edges with DI ripe persimmon then using
the maple leaf stencil, stencilled with DI ground espresso.
3. To create the tipper I distressed the card with DI pickled raspberry and dried marigold, I then lay down the circles stencil from the basic backgrounds and using water removed the ink.
4. Once this was dry I drew around 3 of the circles with Copic multiliner.  I then stamped the maple leaf stamps and sentiment with Versafine vintage sepia and embossed with clear embossing powder.
5. To finish off I made a double bow with string and added a leaf from my garden.
