Indian Summer

Hi Bloggers,

Okay, where did September go, how can it be the first of October already!

Anyways, it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight our hostess is Mynette and she has chosen the theme "Indian Summer".

Mynnette would like to see a created scene using any nature themed stamps you have, digis welcome. Examples of nature themed stamps are leaves, grasses, wildflowers, etc. Anything nature and autumn! Plus use only oranges, yellows, and reds for colors (black/brown and white/cream are allowed as well). Perhaps a sentiment of gratitude or autumn would also be appropriate!

Our sponsor is Di's Digi Downloads

I  have made a card using a variation of the "triple layer stamping" technique.

I assembled the three layers of card then stamped the PaperArtsy flowerhead in Versamark and clear embossed. I then inked with Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Fired Brick Distress Inks. I then matted onto black cardstock.  The border punch is EK Success. It was still looking a bit plain so rather than add a sentiment I added the strip of ribbon.

Thanks for joining me again today, hope to see you over at Crafty Cardmakers.
