Autumn Days

I played with the new French Foliage stamp set from the Autumn/Winter mini over the weekend. It is a set that can be made into a masculine or feminine card, so is very versatile.  I wanted to use my water colour paper but couldn't find it - (I'd obviously put it in a safe place) so used Very Vanilla cardstock instead. I sprayed this lightly with water and then stamped the French writing and three different leaves randomly over it in Cajun Craze, More Mustard and So Saffron - real Autumn colours. The colours a bled a bit, which was the effect I was after. After I tucked the linen thread behind the collage piece and adhered the brads, I was a bit stumped and didn't quite know what I was going to do next. I'm happy with the end result though and will pop this away in my little emergency stash.

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, More Mustard, Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze
Ink: So Saffron, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Peach Parfait

  1. Very nice Debbie - this is a set that I was not drawn to initially but I am seeing some lovely cards made with it. Mmmm may have to find some money to buy it.

  2. Beautiful card Debbie. The colours work beautifully. Do I alter my wish list how many times?

  3. Just beautiful, I love the background stamping- x

  4. Love what you have done, great with the cut out leaves (they look real)

  5. This is beautiful, clever girl. I might be altering my wish list too.... *sigh*


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I really enjoy reading them. Regards, Debbie
