Autumn greetings

Happy Friyay everyone!

I pulled out a rather neglected Penny Black background stamp today and coloured it with some distress inks. The Crushed Olive turned out a little lighter than I originally intended, but I decided to stick with it, rather than try to darken it!

It was quite nerve-racking to cut into the painted background once I had finished it, but I do love the hidden greeting technique and I am glad that I did it!

I’m entering this card into the current Color Throwdown Challenge – plum, rust and olive.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
