Update...Absolutely delighted to have been Hi-Lighted at
One Layer Simplicity Challenge for this card...Thank you so very much xxx
One layer cards are a challenge in itself and Autumn ones I think are tricky.
I see Autumn as beautiful autumnal colours, leaves and trees.
I see them as 3D and not flat so this was my challenge.
I tried to do something similar from this inspiration
I used a clearly besotted leaf stamp for mine.
I blended distress inks, flicked water and tried (badly) to do splatters.
I wanted to leave white around the leaf but not quite so contrived as the one I've got!
That was because I had to keep mopping up my 'bad' splatting!
I used gold mica to hi-light the leaf and to do some of the splats.
I enjoyed trying the new technique (to me) from the inspiration link above.
I didn't realise you could use distress stains to stamp with.
I have used ink pads and the markers before
but always thought the stains to be too runny, so a lesson learnt.
