Autumn Leaves

Well it seems I can share some of the cards delivered to Stamp Addicts this morning as they are going to be shown at their first ever retreat next weekend. Sarah tells me they have 40 people booked to attend, so sounds like she has a very busy time ahead.

The main stamp I had to work with is Judikins 2784I, a set of four leaves so I was very at home with this botanical theme. Clearly it gave me an Autumnal feeling as I realised after the first ten or so cards there was a distinct theme of oranges and golds going on.

I started by brayering a piece of glossy cardstock with a rainbow inkpad, then stamped over with versafine black and embossed with detail clear and cut each leaf out. The tiny leaves are cut on Cricut Storybook and stippled with Adirondack acrylic dabbers. The DP is Doodlebug designs.
I'd better be honest and tell you the card is actually sidewards on, despite turning the image several times, it just reverts, but as it square figure it will be OK as I don't have the original to do another piccy.
