Sweet Stampin Challenge DT Card

Here's my first DT Card for Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog - the theme is Autumn.  They hold a weekly challenge with fantastic prize vouchers, plus a monthly prize draw for everyone who submits a card/project throughout the month.  I'm in Team Fi and I'll be showing off my card/project every 2 weeks, so watch this space.

As I mentioned this week's theme is ANYTHING GOES - AUTUMN, so why not drop by and check out what my fabulous Design Teamies have created to inspire you, then why not enter your card or project into the challenge. This week's sponsor is Cuddly Buddly and there's a £10 voucher up for grabs and the monthly draw sponsor is The Ribbon Girl.

I love autumn and it's gorgeous colours, so for this challenge I decided create a stamped scenic topper. Firstly I diecut a circle to mask out a moon and inked up the background leaving it paler down the centre of the panel.  To make my hill mask I roughly cut bumps and indents out of a piece of card and dragged down coloured ink using a sponge.  I made the hill nearest the moon paler and the one nearest the bottom darkest to give perspective. 

Flowers and branches were stamped on top of the background in different poses in black ink to create the scene - then more coloured ink was added to the very top and bottom. Job done!  This was mounted onto black and orange card. Finally I diecut 3 leaves from shrink plastic and coloured them with pencils and shrunk them - omg they look so cute.

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Inkylicious 'Summer Morn' and 'Moonlight Foliage'
Die: Tim Holtz 'Tattered Leaves'
Distressing Inks: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Firebrick Red, Vintage Photo, Tea Dye
Other: Ribbon, Shrink Plastic, Derwent Colouring Pencils, Memento Black Ink, Heat Gun, Gems, Ink Dusters, Splodge Mat

I hope you like my 1st card for Sweet Stampin and you visit us very soon - don't forget to join in with our fun challenge.  I look forward to seeing what you create.
