Autumn Wishes (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks I have a card sample for you today, using the new Autumn Fairy unmounted stamp collection. I have chosen to use the lovely Art Nouveau style seed pods as a focal image for my design. I have coloured the image with Distress Markers and added two of the butterflies from the collection to complete the picture.

To create my background, I used Seedless Preserves, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed and Forest Moss Distress Inks, which I blended acrooss the card. I then took a mask, and used the same colours again, to deepen two of the corners. I stamped the large word 'Autumn' onto a tag shape, and matted this onto some olive coloured ribbon, using two large black brads, to echo the large black bubbles in the main design.





Keep checking back for some beautiful samples from my Design Team mates over the coming days. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  1. The glow you created around the floral image by your soft inking of the die-cut edges is subtle & engaging & I love your use of the olive ribbon & the deep burgundy cardstock to echo the colours of your background.

  2. Judith - I love this card, particularly the background. Gorgeous colours & shading & the mask you've used is fab. Do you happen to know the name/make of it? Think I "need" one..... :-)

    all the best, Liz M x
