Autumn Leaves Card by Alison Hall

Hello Stampers! I was inspired by the beautiful colours of the Autumn trees to make this card.


Here's what I used...

Round Paint Brush (or waterbrush)
Cardstock for matting & layering - Green & Gold
7ins Square White Card 
Double sided tape

Here's what I did...

1.  I cut a piece of smoothy white card 5 1/2 ins square, used all three distress stains to ink the leaves, & stamped them on the card. I stamped the phrase, using potting soil archival ink

2. I dabbed some distress stains onto a craft mat, then used the round paint brush to pick it up & splatter.

3. Next, I sprinkled some gold embossing powder over the leaves & melted it with the heat gun.


4. I layered my artwork onto some green and gold card, then onto a white card blank to finish.

I hope this inspires you to make some Autumn cards.

Thanks for visiting,

Alison xxx

What a wonderful spattery and autumnal card! I love the colours of autumn and you have captured the season perfectly on this card! It reminds me of walks on autumn days and the patterns of leaves against the sky and scattered over the forest floor. xxx
