Autumn leaves

It's the time of year when my favourite colours come into play - and that means many of my all-time favourite stamps come out to play!

The focal point of this stamp is a very old Rubber Stampede falling leaf stamp. I  can't recall exactly when I bought it but I'm guessing it's about 25 years old. I coloured it with Promarkers then cut it out with a narrow border. I often fussy cut it along the outlines but as I wanted to create this background I thought it needed the white for definition.

For the background, I masked the edges of the card then stamped all over with a speckle design stamp and a Kaleidacolor  pad, then used a leaf silhouette and the brown end of the pad to lightly stamp a few leaves here and there.

I added a stamped sentiment and two buttons that have an all-over autumn leaf design, finished with twine bows.

I am sharing this with

Goodness, this is stunning!! The masked border along the edges of your card is so effective in framing the gorgeous stamping on your background! The small white border around your coloured leaves if perfect too, and the Autumn colours are absolutely beautiful! I LOVE your beautiful buttons! A perfect finish to your beautiful card! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Passion for Promarkers!

That's a beautiful card and the leaves give a different look when used in a stamp and as a site.. Too much dimension and the idea of buttons as embellishments is fantastic
