Autumn colors card


One of the Top Picks

As soon as I saw the current challenge at Color Throwdown, I knew I just can't resist those colors! So so beautiful.

I used several distress inks and distress oxide inks - aged mahogany, spiced marmalade, dried marigold and festive berries, with leaves stencil (Creative Impression).

I cut the leaf steam (SSS) from a golden cardstock, and put some of the cut leaves back inside, adhering it to the colored panel.

I die cut a small tag for the sticker sentiment, and added a red twine, and adhered it to the panel.

I then matted the panel with an orange cardstock and adhered it to the maroon basis.
