Autumn colours


Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts, I am this weeks host and as it's almost the end of September and Nature is taking on a new coat my theme is 'Autumn'. The prize is a set of Tattered Lace Autumnal embossing folders.

My top card has a bit of a splattery background using Oxides and I dragged an old credit card across a few sections when still wet to get a bit more interest. The leaves are Penny Black layering stamps which I stamped with Oxides and water using the stamp platform. A sentiment, also PB and some white splatters to finish.


This one has a Distress Ink and stencilled background, the Penny Black Chinese Lanterns inked direct to stamp in the same way as the leaves above and a PB sentiment.

I do hope you will join in this week and look forward to visiting al your Autumnal creations.

They shout AUTUMN at the top of their voices Brenda!! Lovely cards and the credit card technique made me smile!! You have captured the colours of the chinese lanterns perfectly. These remind me of my Nan and Pop who had them in their garden. It has been many years since I have seen any actually xx

A wonderful theme Brenda, so perfect for this time of the year and I always enjoy this time of the year when all the trees in the neighborhood are so pretty and colorful!
Two wonderful creations here with the pretty backgrounds for your colorful leaves and chinese lantern!
Hope you're having a good weekend, nice and summery warm over here still!

Ciao Brenda :)
Che meraviglia quelle foglie che cadono sopra il background con lo splatter!!! Stupenda card!
Mi piace anche la seconda con gli Alchechengi (in Italia le Lanterne Cinesi si chiamano così) e la bellissima frase di Madre Teresa! Devo usare di più le timbrate sugli sfondi fatti a stencil, io tendo sempre a fare sovrapposizioni con fustellate, ma con la piattaforma per timbrare (io ho quella di Tim Holtz) le timbrate vengono molto nitide e hanno risalto.
Grazie, come sempre imparo molto da te!! Devo solo ricordarmi di metterlo in pratica LOL :D
Abbracci!!

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, B! Your direct-to-stamp Chinese Lantern image is fabulous! Such deep rich colors, it looks like a hand-painted masterpiece! The sentiment in the lovely falling leaves creation is extra heart warming. I could feel a colorful hug coming just from the sentiment with the rainbow of autumnal colors from the leaves. Wishing you well. hugs, de
