Challenge #93
Autumn Colours

This fortnights challenge 'Autumn Colours' has been chosen by Chriss.

I decided to go with the yellows and golds of Autumn more than the browns as I wanted to play with this Dandelion rubber stamp from Crafter's Companion which I have had for a while and not used.  The background was created using Distress Inks and then I added the sentiment in gold stamping and heat embossed it.  Next was the fun part, lots of stamping and masking, not something I am very good at but do so enjoy.  Once the images were all stamped I quickly coloured with Copics, finally I added mica flakes in bronze and gold just to bring a bit of brown into the creation.  The image layer was matted on black then orange and I covered my card base with some beautiful brown and orange wrinkly paper a very good friend gave me several years ago.  What a joy working with this paper as lots of very happy memories came flooding back.  We knew each other while our hubbies were working in Saudi Arabia, she alas, also retired now is back in the USA so we have not seen each other for 4 years.  One day I am sure we will meet up again, until then memories fill the gap :)
