The mornings are cooler but then a a beautiful sun shines not too hot, just enough to call you for a stroll. The wonderful colors of autumn are everywhere.... I love this season! I love it so much that I started by making a bookmark for a swap and ended up with a whole set made of a card, a bookmark and a tag.
I started by making a background in shades of brown, then stamped and embossed some leaves in black, but when I had to color them as planned I just didn't feel like doing it. So I took put my box of scraps and started flipping through the color palette files in it and stopped at black. After all it is one of the Halloween colors, so I thought "why not"?
Here is my bookmark after a little cuttlebug cutting and embossing and ponging some copper ink. Totally Love it! And yes, that's the book I am currently reading.
Now another try at stamping and coloring leaves, total failure so I decided to go the same way as with the bookmark and see what comes out. In the mean time I made a flower from some gift rap paper I had in my scrap box. I thought it looked great on my cream-brown-black card.
I am entering this card into the Scrapper In Romania Challenge #6. The great thing about this challenge is that anything goes: from digital to jewelery you can create anything as long as it matches the theme.
I had the leaf, I had the tag from a mini album I made last year, so I thought why not combine all these elements since they were already out and here is what I came up with:
Wishing everyone a warm and lovely autumn!
