Autumn colours

Hello lovely peeps

It's the first Saturday of the month which means it is time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar. The theme this month is

 'Autumn Colours'

and the sponsors are

Crafty Ribbons £10 voucher

lawn fawn

For my inspiration card I have used Brushos and stamps/dies from Issue 11 of the Crafters Companion Inspiration magazine

First I stamped three types of the leaves onto watercolour card with Versamark ink and sprinkled on Detail White embossing powder (Stampendous) before melting.

I sprinkled Dark Brown, Crimson and Orange Brusho powders onto the card and spritzed with water

I used the corresponding dies to cut the leaves out and cut a Happy Birthday from watercolour card using the Butterfly Lullaby Signature collection

I cut another 6" square of watercolour card and sprinkled more Brusho powders in the centre before spritzing with water. I wrapped red and brown organza ribbon around the card and tied with a knot before attaching it to a 6"x6" card blank. The sentiment and leaves were attached with Cosmic Shimmer/Pinflair Glue Gel. 

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Crafty Ribbons #174 Anything Goes..with ribbon or lace
Deep Ocean Challenge #141 Use die-cuts or punches
Artistic Stampers  Autumnal
