Simply an ATC

A little bit more inkiness today to try and take my mind off how I feel. This time I've used a new 'All our yesterdays' stamp by aye Whittaker, cropping the sides a bit to make it fit to an ATC size.

I inked with memento rich cocoa and water coloured with distress inks - brushed corduroy, old paper, victorian velvet and fired brick.

I needed to get inky ...

It's been quite a day and I'm not feeling good, but I needed to get inky and make a card. It was my turn to choose the theme for TTC12 09 on Crafts for Carolyn forum and I chose: autumn with leaves and/or trees, so this is another card for that.

This card is based on the sketch for Try stampin on Tuesday 83:


 used the lovely Stampers anonymous leaf stamp inking it with a mixture of spiced marmalade, squeezed lemonade, fired brick and vintage photo distress inks, using a water brush and some more of the colours to fill in the pieces of the leaf.

The card blank is a textured light peach colour with the edges distressed with a mix of the inks used for the leaf and the surrounding two die cuts. The tapes across the diagonal are Tim Holtz tissue tape, distressed with the inks, with the addition of a piece of narrow washi tape across the middle (freebie with a magazine).

Colours are for Creatalicious 38: autumnal colours:
