Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

Good morning everyone. I am sharing a fall card with you today. I tell everyone that this is my favourite time of year.  I love the cooler temperatures and the beautiful colours we are graced with by the changing leaves.  And, speaking of leaves, I used Leaf Background for my card today. I used my MISTI to help me centre the image on my die cut Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper, so I would have a nice clean border, and stamped using Tim Holtz Distress Inks Seedless Preserves. I then coloured the leaves with various colours of Zig Brushes, including yellow, pinks, oranges and greens.  I then stamped the Autumn Sentiment from the 4 Seasons Kanji and English using the Seedless Preserves and heat embossed with clear embossing powder on a strip of 40 lb. Vellum.  I wanted matting, and originally thought just the lighter purple, but I liked the deeper purple added as well.  And of course, sequins in the autumn tones were added to finish my card.  I hope you enjoy this card today and thank you for visiting with Art Neko today.

    What a fabulous tapestry-like effect of warm autumn colours, Kia – it’s gorgeous.
