Feels like Autumn

It's weeks since I've had chance to enter the Less is More Challenge and as the weather is so foul, I thought I'd have a go.   The theme this week 184 is FOLIAGE and it's a ONE LAYER week too.

I always admire projects using kraft card so that was my starting point - I tried to ink and spray the Mountain Ash stamp (from Oak House Studio) to create some colourful autumn leaves but the card was having none of it.  They went in the bin and so for my 5th  attempt, I just stamped with Yummy Chocolate ink and used a Hero Arts sentiment to finish.

I have a Joseph Rock Mountain Ash tree in my front garden and yesterday I noticed the leaves were starting to change colour already.  It must be the lack of rain.....until today of course.  Hope you are all staying dry and thanks for looking.


  1. Wonderful one layer card. I love using Kraft card but it is difficult to colour, the leaves look great in the chocolate coloured ink.

  5. Your five attempts made me smile, I have had a similar experience today! Your card is beautiful though, love the simple stamping to create a very elegant card! Anne xx
