Autumn already?

Here's a quick card for the Less is More Challenge week 135 where the theme is to use a Rubber Stamp and Watercolours.

The stamp I've used is the Flower Flourish from Hero Arts and the inks are Mowed Lawn, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo Distress Inks on a messy mat and spritzed with a little water. I started off inking the stamp with Thyme Brilliance and then swiped into the Mowed Lawn. Next I swiped the stamp through the Spiced Marmalade and finally added a bit of Vintage Photo. I stamped quite a few adding other colours but ended up using a strip of the first three fixed to a red square card and gold embossed the Warm Wishes from Darkroom Door to finish.  I know it's only the 2nd of September but love the autumnal feel of this.

I think I  have to apologise for being missing in action.  I can't remember when I last entered this challenge - I keep looking and have ideas every  week, but just run out of time.  I have no idea where the summer has gone but I promise I'll try better in the future!!   Thanks for looking!


  1. Lovely colour choices Elaine and they all look beautiful against the warm red of the background card creating a very autumnal feel. Hugs, Anne x

  2. Love the autumn colours and combination of stamps and watercolours, a beautiful card.
