Autumn in the air

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. The days are getting shorter and the weather is definitely crisper – yes, autumn is in air here in the UK so it seems apt that this fortnight’s theme is ‘Autumn Colours’. Uniko is our sponsor.

For my card, I used a stamp from my favourite Simon Says Stamp set (Fractile Leaves) plus a sentiment from Winnie & Walter which I inked up with Delicata brown shimmer ink which I covered in clear embossing powder.

Can we just take a moment to admire that Delicata ink? It is soooo shimmery! Absolutely gorgeous!

Anyway, I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencil and then blended with baby oil. First time doing that and I love the effect – will be using it again! Anyway, I resisted the urge to add some bling. I think this could make quite a good maculine card, do you?

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – clean and simple.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by our Guest Designer, the super-talented Hannelie from Desert Diva. I’m sure many of you already know her and her amazing creations – but for those of you who don’t, you should definitely drop by her site – you are in for a treat!

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

  1. Definitely need to take time to admire that Delicata ink – on my wish list! Gorgeous CAS card Lucie and super autumnal colours. And yes there’s definitely something in the air that says it’s Autumn, woke up to one of those misty moist mornings today.
