Life Moments

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Well I'm back and this morning it is a chilly but dry one. I am hoping that I brought some sun back with me, it was nice when we landed the sun was out :)
We had a wonderful time in Malta and will share some photographs at the weekend.

Today it will be all about admin, DT samples as well as getting the holiday washing done too.

Today sharing another card using Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and Leaf Blueprint stamp and die set to create this autumnal card.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 cream scalloped square card base.
2. Matted and layered orange card.
3. To create background I used water colour card and spritzed with water and added some of Ken Oliver's Colour Bursts.  Once dry I then stecilled the autumn leaves stencil by Tim Holtz with vintage photo Distress Oxides.
4. I then stamped the oak leaf with vintage sepia Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then distressed around with fossilized amber and spiced marmalade.
5. To finish off I stamped the sentiment and decoupaged the leaf.

I would like to enter this for the following challenges:
