Sally DT - Autumn inspiration


 Good morning! It seems we have entered the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, so another Autumn inspired card was a must. after all, it is my favourite season! 

To make this card I have used:

Queen Bee Journalling Autumn botanicals

Wordage - Small words

Stencil tape/ low tack masking tape

Versafine clair in Acorn, Fallen Leaves, Shady Lane and Tulip

Tea dye Distress ink 

A blending brush

Liquid pearls in Garnet, buttercup and Avacado

Here is a step by step to explain what I did. 

First place a piece of stencil tape across your card blank at a jaunty angle and use the brush to apply ink along both sides of the tape. Apply around the edge of the card too if you want to.

Next, stamp the lovely Autumnal botanicals with their stems overlapping the tape in the different shades of Versafine Clair ink. I tend to stamp the same stamps opposite each other, but it isn't necessary. Random stamping is equally effective.

Now stamp more foliage in the tea dye ink to fill out the background.

Carefully remove the tape and stamp the sentiment. I used versafine clair Acorn ink for this.

Finally add some dots of liquid pearls as berries and (shhh, don't tell anyone!) to cover any fingerprints 😉 The Splat stamp is also brilliant for this.

Here is a last look at the finished card

 You have a couple of days left to enter the Bee Crafty Stamps challenge on the facebook group with it's Autumn colours theme. Thanks for looking!
