Autumn Days

        Autumn Splendour....
What a beautiful and colourful time of the year....
Every-time I look out of my window the trees are changing colours.
I made the card inspired by the Autumn Colours 
and the last Rays of Sunshine.
Even though it's gone cold and the leaves are falling, 
the sun is still trying hard to shine.
The Mica Mega Flakes on the right hand side of the card 
is to represent the Suns Rays.

I made only one card and took photos before adding the die cut leaves 
and then took more photos after I'd popped them on...
but I didn't like how they came out...
I have tried and tried, so put the both photos on..

The background is blended with distress inks 
and mica powder on top for shine.
The tree has been stamped twice and the leaves tumbling from another tree stamp.
I have stamped a script stamp, hi-lighting some with gold embossing.
The clouds have also been stamped and hi-lighted with a brush and mica.
I stamped the sentiment and cut it into individual strips, 
edged in gold EP and mounted on foam.
I have edged the main card with gold EP 
and the black card to give faux layers.
I used a dipping pen and white calligraphy ink to hi-light the birds and the text.
I am entering the following challenges
All stamps are IndigoBlu
Leaves - 'Lollipop Tree' Stamp
Tree, birds, clouds and sentiment - 'Nature 1' stamp set
Script - 'Sarah's Choice' stamp set

and
