Yet more falling leaves

I can't get enough of autumn colours, and you can tell that by a quick look at my craft stash. Many of my favourite and most frequently used stamps are autumn themed, like the one I have used here. It's a Rubber Stampede stamp and I'm not sure just how long I've had it - at least 10 years and probably nearer to 15. It's still one of my favourites and is becoming a firm favourite with the grandchildren too.

Today I've coloured it with Promarkers and the backing paper is from the DCWV Stack 9 12x12 pad. The leaf embellishments are Tando die cuts, coloured with Imagination Crafts Starlights paints - they are left over from a card I made last week. I'd actually made a stamped and coloured shrink plastic embellishment, but I'd forgotten how much the colour changes during shrinking so that's been set aside to use on a future project.

I am sharing this with
