Saturday Scribbles

Hey! Welcome to the week end and a day full of crafting.

This week I made a card using the layout from Freshly Made Sketches and the colour scheme from Lavinia Stamps - Autumn.

First up I masked off a circle and used my inkylicious dusters to make a glowing Autumn sun.  I always get carried away when I get the dusters out and absolutely adore the way brushing different colours over a piece of card gives such an amazing effect - it's a bit like magic.

I've been wanting to use the geese stamp from Lavinia for ages and used a scrap piece of card to stamp them, then mounted it on to a very dark brown card and simply placed it across the sun.  Very simple, but I like the look.

Stamp: Lavinia Stamps, geese
Inks: Memento, dandelion, tangelo; Adirondack, red pepper, cranberry

Thanks for looking & have a good day!
