Autumn is Here

Hi all.  I think that now we are nearly into October we have to except that summer is over and the trees will soon be changing colour, and the mushrooms and toadstools will be popping up, and so this card which I found in my 'drafts' which I hadn't got around to showing is quite appropriate. We have had our son staying with us over from Australia so cardmaking has been suspended for a while as we have obviously been doing other things.  He has less than a week left now before he goes home and we will miss him a lot, but we have been lucky as this is his second visit this year which has been great!  

This features a freebie digital paper which I downloaded from one of the magazines, and I added some toadstools from a Chocolate Baroque set call Autumn Poppy.  I scaled it to fit on my white 6" square card and added the toadstools embossed with Wow Metallic Brass Embossing Powder and coloured them using my Inktense Pencils without any water.  I finished by adding a sentiment with Versafine Vintage Sepia and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss EP.  I like the mix of colours in the paper, but not sure there would be a bird's nest with eggs in at this time of, but apart from that I think it works well.

Thank you for taking a look at my blog today and I'll see you again soon.

I am entering the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Week 747 Four Legged Friends/Anything Goes.
Stamping Sensations September Challenge -  Garden Delights/Anything Goes.
We Love Stamping September Challenge - Trees and Leaves/Anything Goes.

Always something magical about strooms Pat and like the way your blend seamlessly into the Autumnal hues. I noticed at the weekend they are appearing around the paddock headlands so must take a few photos.

Many thanks for joining us at Allsorts, Stamping Sensations and We Love Stamping. Enjoy the next week of your Son's visit.

Great card made using the downloaded paper - I guess the bird's nest in an autumn scene could be called artistic licence 😉

Beautiful card Pat, great idea to stamp over the digital paper. Enjoy the rest of your son’s visit. xx

The stamped toadstools merge seamlessly into the background, I love the soft misty colours- reminiscent of a misty autumn morning. Thank you for sharing at Stamping Sensations.
