Here's a card for the Less is More Challenge week 90 where the theme is AUTUMN.

I couldn't decide what leaves to use etc but in the end used the heart as I love Autumn and it's many colours.   The background is swooshed with Distress Inks - Pine Needles, Barn Door, Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn  - to create a nice mixed autumnal colour.  I've clear embossed the Heart Palette Stamp from Oak House Studio over the top and then blended Pine Needles over the top to make it stand out.   It's just finished with some gold dabber around the edges, matted onto gold paper and a rub-on added.   Apologies for the photo - it looks a bit hazy!

I do love this time of year when it is cold and sunny and the trees are looking beautiful.  This weekend has been grey and rainy and today the forecast is mist, cloud, mist and then!!

Anyway I thought I'd stay in and get inky instead - thanks for looking!!

  2. Elaine, this is so, so pretty, very autumnal feeling, I love it. It looks three dimensional to me, don't know how you did that but it looks amazing! My favourite time of year. A x
