Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 97: fall leaves

This is my design card for the Cheerful stamp pad challenge 97: fall leaves. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in the challenge.

I created a background on watercolour card with some of my new Spectrum Noir AquaTint Inks, stamping the Stampers Anonymous leaf stamp inked with various distress inks - brown corduroy, spiced marmalade, fired brick, sometimes using two or three of the inks together on the stamp.

This was then mounted on to some old gold mirror card and then on to an 8 x 8 card that had been wiped with the distress inks. The 'last butterflies of summer' twill was dusted with the distress inks. Crystal jewels from the Hobby House were added an a DCWV chipboard sentiment panel.

I have to add that, although the Spectrum Noir AquaTint Inks are lovely, I had watched the talented Sheena Douglass using them so easily, but I didn't have the same success. I shall try harder next time.
