Hi everyone. I love this time of year with the autumn leaves falling from the trees - so beautiful. I tried to capture that beauty with my copper leaves which have been pounced with alcohol inks. I used a color card base today (unusual for me!), and a small strip of patterned paper, over-stamped (second generation stamping) with my favorite background script stamp. To finish, I stamped a simple sentiment and added a few strands of knotted copper cording gifted to me by my good friend Susan.
This is also a reminder of the current challenge at Mixed Media Card Challenge (#3 - Autumn colors with optional element: metal or leaves) which is open until Sept. 25th.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations from the DT, as well as the amazing cards that have been entered into the challenge ... you will find tons of inspiration! And hope you'll play along with us.
I'm also entering this into Virginia's View Challenge #7 - Pattern Paper. I used a strip of patterened paper for my main panel.
