Autumn Leaves

Hi!   Today's card was made at the weekend but I'm only just getting around to posting it!  I decided to join in the one layer challenge at Less is More as well as a second entry in the current Time Out challenge.  Both of these have an autumn-themed challenge going on at the moment.

I went for a favourite layout of mine with a sponged panel and some over-stamping.  The panel was masked and sponged with Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo distress inks.  After I removed the masks, I stamped a NBUS foliage set by Penny Black called Lush and Lavish in Archival Black ink, using my Misti for good coverage. 

After the leaves were stamped, I put the masks back on and stamped the little dots from Bold Blooms to tie everything together.

Thanks for visiting.

Products used:

Stamps:  Lush and Lavish (Penny Black), Bold Blooms (Ellen Hutson), Happy (Stamplorations)
Ink:  Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo (Distress), Archival Black
Cardstock:  white
