House Mouse Challenge - Fall


This is my second Spot as Guest Designer for the House Mouse Challenge Blog and the theme this fortnight is 'Fall', very appropriate for this time of the year.  The girls on the Design Team are a very talented group and have made some fabulous creations for your inspiration, so do please pop over to the blog and have a look, and hopefully you will join us. 

For my card I have used one of the unmounted Fall stamps from Joanna Sheen.  I stamped the image, coloured with Promarkers and used chalks for the sky.  I stamped and coloured a few extra leaves,and added some Glamour Dust, (the original stamp only has 3 falling leaves), there are also some smaller leaves in the set, so I stamped these onto the panel at the bottom.  I inked the base cardstock with Bundled Sage, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Quirky Crafts - Autumn Leaves
  One Stop Craft - No Designer paper
  I Love Promarkers - Cute
  Little Red Waggon - Autumn
