Crafty Boots Challenges - Autumn is in the air MID CHALLENGE REMINDER

This was a hard challenge for me at Crafty Boots Challenges, our Autumn is earlier in the year, when the northern hemisphere is celebrating Spring. So we have just entered Spring here, and my mind is on sunshine (which we have yet to experience), warm weather (ditto), and flowers (getting there slowly). Anyhoo, thank heavens for Pinterest, hey? Once I hit Pinterest, the creative ideas started flowing.

I took two of my favourite Autumn-themed stamp sets (both Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree, and French Foliage), but I wanted to go that little bit further, so I played around with the Shaving Foam Technique, some Tim Holtz Distress reinkers, and an Adirondack Alcohol ink, and came up with this background. It was so much fun, I ended up making a Shaving Foam master sheet and played around with a few different finishes. I have deliberately left the sentiment off, so I can add it inside the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. For once our summer has lingered and we seem to have jumped into autumn the last three or four days, so I too have struggled to get into an autumnal frame of mind.

    Your card is amazing Jess, the colours are fabulous and I love your naked trees stamp.
