I've made a rather hasty card this week after the arrival of my new card-io stamps (the tree set) I fancied having a go at some of the Autumn challenges that have been posted recently so tried to combine the two. I have to admit, orange is pretty far down on my list of colours that I use regularly (so much so that the little fabrico tangerine ink pad I used for this card was still in its cellophane wrapping!)
Anyway, it's good to push out of your comfort zone once in a while and so this encouraged me to do so.
I first inked the autumnal sunset background using versa colour camellia and canary, as well as the tangerine fabrico ink pad. I added in the cardio trees with a few remaining autumn leaves.
Next I used a torn sheet of paper as a mask and inked with an ancient 'evergreen' versa colour pad to make the lighter green band. Having re-positioned the mask lower down I inked a second band of versa colour green in front.
I used cardio bunny stamps in the foreground, again using the torn paper mask to give the impression that the bunny was popping up from behind something.
Finally I bordered the card with a fine line of golden rod stickles glitter.
I'd like to enter this card in to the following challenges;
Sir Stampalot -colours of autumn
Penny Black and More - warm autumn colours
Allsorts - no designer paper
My time to craft - autumnal colours
Less is more - one layer only
The Craft Barn - Light (although I still have another project up my sleeve for this one... maybe!)
