One layer for Autumn

We're beginning to have the first signs of autumn here - the hedgerows are laden with berries already and our long, hot summer is cooling off.

For this one-layer card I used stamps from the beautiful autumn-themed stamp sheet that comes with the current issue of Creative Stamping.  First I stamped a sentiment from the sheet, then (using faint pencil guidelines which I later erased because I'm a wimp) I stamped the four background squares by inking up my smallest square acrylic block with distress inks, spritzing it very lightly with water and stamping it down onto the card. I chose a berry silhouette stamp from the set and stamped it at a different angle on each square, then used a white gel pen to brighten the highlights on each berry.

I am sharing this with

  1. Lovely! I always like colour on silhouettes on a card, Jo x

  2. Ah this is super, what a great card, Hazelxx

  3. I would have never guessed those squares were done with acrylic block stamping. Terrific job, Jane! And clever — not wimpy — to draw in guidelines with a pencil. Great colours and finishing touch with the white pen highlights. Thank you for joining us at Less is More. x

  4. What an amazing card - I love the clean lines and absolute striking simplicity of this - it really is just gorgeous.
    Thank you for joining us at MIUCB!

  5. Ooh, I am LOVING what you've done with this card, great choice of silhouette image over the squares too


  6. Beautiful autumn color palette and I love your one layer design, Jane! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Addicted to CAS!
