Autumn Edges

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have a couple of  vibrant designs to show using Chocolate Baroque's fabulous new Autumn Edges.  I love the colours of Fall, but they are fading here :(

The leaves at the top are from Autumn Poppy and the Mushrooms from Autumn Edges.

I used Distress Sprays in the background and bleached out some of the stamped areas and painted with Distress Inks. (using a craft mat, brush & water).  The outlining is with a white pen.  I added glitter to the 'ground'.  The sentiment is from Amazing Birthday.

The flower die cuts are by Crealie which I coloured first with Distress inks and then painted over with Glimmer Glaze.  

And below is the 2nd leafy design :)

I painted the leaf edge stamp from Autumn edges (in the middle of the card) with Tom Bow markers, spritzed a with a little water and stamped on white card stock.

The background is Persimmon & Raspberry Distress Inks using an acrylic block and water.   I over stamped with a leaf from Autumn Poppy.

Happy Birthday from Birthday Words and the small solid leaf border were stamped with Cocoa dye ink.   The fabulous leaf die cuts are from Impression Obsession which I coloured with Distress Inks.

Thanks for your visit and have a great day,

Once again you have taken my soul away to Shirley's Land of Enchantment! HOW GORGEOUS the garden of your soul must be, my friend, to come up with these fabulous creations. I love the first card especially with the intense colors and beautiful white highlights. What brand of white pen do you use? Thanks for transporting me, once again, into your magical land of Nature. hugs, de

These are both beautiful Shirley and the colours wonderfully vibrant. Those toadstools and leaves look great with the white pen which looks a little like morning dew or a touch of frost maybe, also love the added flowers, and the second with the die cut leaves and the band of leaves across the middle finish the card perfectly. Love those gems too. Hope the upcoming weekend is a good one! x

Dear Shirley, both cards are wonderful autumn art work. I love the first most cause I love the white outlines so much and the whole stamp combination is grandiose, but also the second is a fabulous autumn sample!
Big hugs Anja
