Happy Thursday to you .....
Thanks for stopping by. What a beautiful day we've got here ..... clear blue skies, the sun is shining, but boy is it chilly!! I think we're going to have to give in and put the heating on tonight. Can't really complain though .... it is the middle of October after all!
There's an Autumn theme over at Less is More this week .... and it's One Layer Week, always a favourite.
I do love one layer cards .... not always the easiest to make I must say but, once you get the hang of them they can become addictive!
CAS as always for this challenge ...... I started out by inking the circle using various shades of Distress Inks through a mask ...... Wild Honey, Festive Berries and Forest Moss with just a touch of Aged Mahogany, splattered it with water (as I love to do with distress ink) and mopped up the excess leaving that lovely speckled background
I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment next (from Inkylicious) using Vintage Sepia Versafine ink ...... love these words
Using the same Distress colours as before I then stamped my beautiful autumn leaves ...... see how the Distress ink has pooled on the stamp (clear polymer stamp) giving this speckled look to the leaves ..... now I could have taken a paint brush and water and smoothed the ink out a little but I really like the sort of skeleton leaf effect .... what do you think?
I finished off with a few ink splats here and there (can't resist!) using the Aged Mahogany Distress
And added a little something to the inside too .....
Well that's lunchtime over for me ..... time to get in the old craft room I think. My postie's been so it's busy, busy, busy for me this afternoon.
Enjoy the rest of your day and cheerio until next time.
PS I couldn't have put this better myself ........
