Hello & Welcome

Today is the new blog challenge at
Crafty Cardmakers
Kim is hosting this challenge.  Her theme is 'Autumn' and if you click on the link below it will take you directly to the challenge where you'll see the gorgeous designs from the other DT members

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it's autumnal themed.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!

This is my contribution to the Design Team (DT)

  • I started with a piece of 'dark roast coffee' foundation card and cut it to 11x14.5cm with a top opening
  • A panel was then cut out of white watercolour card and I embossed one leaf die into it
  • I used several Distress Inks to colour the leaf and when dry I ran a red ink pen around the edges and covered the whole leaf with a 'Wink Of Stella Glitter Pen'
  • I typed the sentiment on watercolour card, as I wanted to keep the same look of the paper, and die cut it using the outer die only from the set
  • Dark Roast Coffee Foundation Card ~ Creative Expressions (CE)
  • Watercolour Card ~ Crafter's Companion
  • Leaf die ~ Autumn Leaf Trio/CE CED1467
  • Distress Inks, Pine Needles & Victorian Velvet ~ Ranger
  • Distress Oxide Ink, Walnut Stain ~ Ranger
  • Outer cutting die ~ Indian Ocean Collection 'Tag Duo' ~ CE
  • Wink Of Stella Glitter Pen ~ ZIG
  • Red tipped pen ~ my stash
