CCM #241 Autumn Colours

As the weather starts to rapidly cool off here in the UK and Autumn is well on the way we would love to see your Autumnal colours for our next challenge.

For my Autumn Colours I started with some lovely papers from Bo Bunny from their Autumn Song collection. I used the outside edge from the paper that I gutted to make the flowers for my challenge last week for Dream Valley….. I so hate to waste pretty papers.

The die cut kraft card leaf is from Craftwork Cards and I coloured it with Distress Inks and then went over it lightly with some lovely red metallic paste from Pentart, which I also used to edge the die cut mat and the back coloured layer.

The little corners were actually the waste from a corner die as I just wanted something to take the ‘white’ off, and didn’t want the full corner. I cut this from some lovely rusty red metallic paper from my stash.  The sentiment is years old from a peel off range of Dawn Bibby’s which I coloured with the currant copic pen.

  1. Hi Lin, thanks for the lovely comments over at mine. I think we're all loving this theme, must be that time of the year. Your leaf card is gorgeous, great techniques too. I love the way that you've layered it up with the die cuts. Have a happy creative week my friend. Big hugs, Angela xXx

  2. This is really pretty. Thanks for joining us at Cardz4galz. Love Dawn x

  3. Hi Lin, totally love your card with the Bo Bunny papers (I love BO Bunny) and the die cut leaf is stunning! Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog.

  4. Hello… Your leaf card is lovely… Thanks for sharing it with us at Crafty Friends. It fits perfectly with our ‘Autumn Colours’ challenge theme. Good luck in the draw and hope you will come back again soon.

  5. Hi Lin, beautiful card, I so love leaves. In answer to your question about the shriveled plastic, I managed to salvage it before it went too far and will blog it later. (Look out for some Mandala style stamps from Woodware and alcohol inked backgrounds)
    Not sure about being a good teamie, I seem to take one step forward and two steps back but I am working on it :O)
    Have a great evening. Hugs Kimx

  9. Beautiful card Lin. Love the copper colour. Have a creative week. Judy

  10. Lovely fall colours, and layout Lin. The metallic certainly adds something, doesn't it? Thank you for joining us at Cardz4Galz :) Lynda DT

  11. Beautiful, a fabulous leaf, great design. Thanks for joining us ar Cardz 4 Galz. Caz. DT.

  12. Beautiful - love that leaf and you've set it off perfectly. So impressed with your frugality (is that a word?) I hate wasting pretty papers too.

  13. A lovely clean and simple card but so effective. Cutting the leaf out of the hidden background is such a good idea. I do this a lot of time as it saves using too much of our "precious" papers!! Thank you for entering and best wishes in the draw. Kym (Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Blog Challenge and Facebook Challenge Design Team Leader)
