Turning Christmas to Autumn

Good Morning Crafters

Before I share today's card I wanted to remind you about the Free Craft Day at Keep on Crafting sponsored by Stix 2, happening tomorrow, 5 August. Join Rushanne Young, one of our regular tutors and a demonstrator, as she demos seasonal craft projects.  You can take part and have a go at any project that she is showing.  We really hope to see you ther for some crafty fun. 

Today's card is an easel card using the Distress Oxides, Distress Inks and the Woodware Sparkly Trees stamp set.  This is one of the newly released Chistmas sets but, as you can see, depending on the colours you use it could be any season.  Today it's my favourite season, Autumn. 

I have used the Press to Impress stamping tool and the following Distress Oxides to create layers on to a piece of embossed cardstock from my stash which I have inked with Distress Inks. 

Distress Oxides used;
Peeled Paint
Spiced Marmalade
Fossilized Amber
Cracked Pistachio
Fired Brick
Wilted Violet
Walnut Stain 

Distress Inks used;
Mustard Seed
Dried Marigold

The stopper is made from an off cut of one of my distess oxide backgrounds.  I added the sentiment using a ZIG Millenium 05 pen
