Autumn Hugs

Hello Friends!

Make My Monday has a new challenge for the next two weeks. Here is my card for today, enjoy!!


No patterned paper here!! Just a stencil, cheap markers, and a water spritzer.
Harlequin stamp in the midground and pumpkin die cuts make for a festive and different card.

Challenge #31
NO patterned paper
_________________________
I really enjoy the use of black for this design.
And using a slice of a tree proved to make an excellent border.
Using both a stamp and die cut to create a unique sentiment.
And no your eyes aren't deceiving you, I did double stamp the word 'autumn' just to keep it interesting.

This card came out of thin air. I simply saw one of my new stencils laying around and thought I would experiment by tracing the stencil with markers. Then I would spritz some water on it to see what happens. Well I think it turned out well but what I like the most is the circular stamp encasing all the red dots. I found it to be a creative way to give the centers a bit of definition and that is where the black inspiration came from! The more I looked at this card the more I loved it... Now it is waiting for the perfect recipient.

Well that should do it for me. I hope you have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Make My Monday. It should be fun! Until then take care and happy crafting.

All the best,
Shawna
