Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Autumn

Helloooooo and good morning everyone ---- it's Sweet Stampin' time again

Our timely theme this week is Autumn, and I don't know about you, but to me that represents an orange, yellow, red and brown colour scheme. So to reflect this I created my autumnal card or should I say my Tango'd card --- lol :)

Here's What I did
I used a A5 scallop white card base. Using the non shimmery side of a piece of Centura Pearl card I distressed the whole area using a selection of autumnal colours; to add a little extra interest in certain areas I used a piece of punched out waste as a mask with a darker shade of distressing ink. Then using pages from an old children's book (bought from a charity shop) I stamped 2 large and 1 small flower twice, and stamped 3 leaves. I coloured the flowers and leaves using Copic markers, cut out them all out and layered up the flowers.  I scribbled 3 stems onto my distressed card and attached my flowers and leaves.  To finish off I added a border strip, gems and a few butterflies.

Here's everything I used:
Stamp: Hero Art 'Dotted Flowers'
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Centura Pearl, Black CS
Distressing Inks: Mustard seed, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Tea Dye
Copics: Y35, Y38, YR04, YR68, R35, 100, YG23
Other: Old Book Pages, Punched Waste, Butterfly Punch, Black Fineliner Pen
