Autumn is Calling

Good Morning everyone

Today is another Autumn card, other years ive not made many autumnal themed cards but this year it really seems to have inspired me, adding a touch of blue to the golds and reds reminds me of the blue skies we often see in Autumn here.  This is another one with oxide inks on soft gold pearl cardstock.  I love how the oxide inks give a mat finish against the pearlescent shimmer shining through.

I first made my hexagon card base using hexagon dies and soft gold pearl cardstock.  I then cut a smaller hexagon and stencilled over it with oxide inks- patina, campfire & amber, i then die cut a smaller hexagon out of the middle - on this piece i stamped the quote in black. I used the same oxide inks to stamp some little dots around the outside of the base card.   I added foam tape to the back of the frame and attached to the card, i then glued the smaller piece back in place but flat - so its inset, lining up all the stencilling.

I added oxide inks to the offcuts of gold pearl card and die cut lots of little leaves, after adding a little shape to the leaves I got arranging them.

Just  a close up - the quote was a magazine freebie years ago
'Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower' 

Items Used:
Lavinia Stencil 'pods'
Lavinia stamp 'mini dots'
Spellbinders dies 'little leaves'
Quote stamp - magazine freebie
Distress Oxide inks - salvaged patina, crackling campfire, fossilized Amber
Soft gold pearl cardstock

Thank you all for stopping by once again. I hope you all have a good week.  Hugs Emmaxxx
