Autumn Leaves

Here is a card I`ve done for Sir Stampalot using one of the new Sarah Kay stamps. I challenged myself to use colours I don`t normally use and I kept to a limited colour palette and I have to say I was really pleased with the results. I get into a habit sometimes of using the same colours that are my favourites but I am trying to broaden my horizons !

The paper is the reverse side of Basic Grey " Hot Stone " which I didn`t even look at when I bought it but I like very much. The image is coloured with Distress inks, Peeled paint, spiced marmalade, brushed corduroy, tattered rose and pumice stone.

The leaves are cut from Sizzix big leaf die and the linen thread is SU which I cannot stop using !!

This image has a very Autumn feel to it as does the weather today ! It`s very wet and windy so a good day to stay indoors and craft, pity I have to work this afternoon which I`d better get myself ready for now !
Thanks for stopping by my blog, bye for now and happy crafting x
