Autumn Leaf

Hello everyone,

Today's post is all about the Fall colours.

The card base is Recollections.  The sponged stripe is Stampin' Up Crumb Cake, Really Rust, River Rock and Tangerine Tango, and Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink.  The image is Hero Arts Leaf Flourish stamped in Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink and highlighted with Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll ink.  The sentiment is Hero Arts Everyday Sayings.

This is a wonderfully clean and simple card.  I just had to see how this sponging technique worked with autumnal colours.  I wasn't disappointed.  It has so much depth and is really rich looking.  This technique does take a lot of patience as the sponging has to be layered slowly otherwise it's really blotchy - I learned that by trial and error.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
