… or Autumn (as it’s otherwise known) is almost on us.
Yes, it is.
Proof ? a) School starts on Monday b) they are harvesting all around us and c) it smells like Autumn.
You know what I mean.
And I’m happy about it – Autumn is my FAVOURITE season by miles. It’s just so beautiful. Love it.
So to celebrate Autumn’s arrival, I present to you a card.
You’re getting it big cos I love it. Really love it.
The starting point was the challenge on A Passion for Papertrey for long and tall cards – this is a DL (unusual for me)
I originally thought about doing 3 of something to fill the page, but then ( out of the FAR TOO MANY PTI sets I haven’t used this summer 😦 ) I saw this lovely leafy tree stamp and it kinda came together after that. And I’m happy with it. I have loved the “aura” effect I’ve been seeing on several of the PTI ladies cards so I thought I’d give that a go (v easy !!) I also pushed myself to do more that my very minimal mat ‘n’ mount CAS style and I think I’ve achieved that too, hence the LONG ingredient list ! Got a cuppy to hand ??
* images are Papertrey Ink’s Through the Trees
* Inks used are Versamark, Versaink and Brilliance
* spritzed with Aspen Gold Glimmer Mist
* Sentiment panel disressed with Tim Holtx Distressing thing (?!)
* Punched with a Fiskars Threading Water punch.
Hope you like it almost as much as I do !
Well, “holidays” are over so I can now resume normal-ish service. Hopefully it won’t be as long between creations !
