Watercoloured Leaf Background Thanks....STAMPlorations CUTplorations Reminder Post


Hope you had a marvelous weekend!  Today, my lovely team and I are bringing you reminders about the  STAMPlorations CUTplorations October 2017 Challenge, where this wonderful image is our inspiration source.

image source: marmaladebleue

My card focuses on the colours in the upper portion of Happy, with an Autumn Thanks card as the result.  This was easy to design: ink blended background, leaves stamped over using the same palette, and a rich, brown CUTplorations sentiment.  I love fall colours!

  4. Warm, rich and deliciously autumnal, Carol ... puts me in mind of a wonderfully cosy sweater ... fabulous! Hugs, Anita :)

  5. Oh my, this is gorgeous, Carol! I adore the fall color palette, the ink blended background with the gently falling leaves. Makes me want to reach for a cup of hot cocoa and a snuggly blanket. Wonderful work on this card! Hugs!
