Autumn Challenge

Can you feel Autumn coming on? We are enjoying an extended summer, with temperatures in the high 20's Celsius currently. But the Mountain Ash are starting to blaze yellow and the leaves are beginning to descend, and it won't be long now.

I am entering this card for the Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog challenge for September, which is "Autumn" and I could not be closer to the mark! This Albert Camus quote is a favourite of mine - the stamp is Stampendous N222 Autumn Flower stamped in Adirondack Raisin dye ink on tan cardstock. The background is Polished Stone created with an assortment of Ranger alcohol inks, and I embossed various leaves (old Hero Arts and PSX stamps) over top with pearly metallic embossing powders. I used a Krylon Gold Leafing Marker to edge the three panels. Thanks for visiting my blog today!

Hi Charmaine, Thanks for leaving such a thoughtful comment over at my blog. It's still hot and humid here. I wish it would cool off. I love the fall weather.

Love the vibrant Autumn colors and the gold embossing in your card!

Your background is amazing - I can almost make out the shapes of the trees and those embossed leaves look wonderful. I love how you mounted the sentiment as well and the gold Krylon borders
