It’s all about Autumn Colours
Autumn is my favourite time of the year.
The intense heat has gone, the days are sunny and calm 
and the nights are a little cooler.
The grass stops growing, the weeds slow down and 
the nights draw in.
Everything seems at peace…
The colours of Autumn can be intense, bright, and in stark 
contrast to the slowing down of the season.
This card has the intensity of the Autumn for the background
and the softness of the sepia in the front
to give the contrast and contradiction of the season.
I really wanted to show you the background for this piece…
one, because you can’t see it when the toppers go on…
and two, because I made a mistake – can you see it?
I accidentally used the embossing folder the wrong side up on one side…
so the left-hand side is backwards, and on the right-hand side it is the right-side up.
I loooove how it turned out though
and I will definitely be making this mistake again.
When it is lightly sanded, the two halves blend into each other very subtly I think.
This is just a close up of the leaves
which have been stamped with Archival Potting Soil,
then spritzed with copper glimmer mist 
and then with heirloom gold.
The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on this theme.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.
I would like to enter this into the following challenge ~
