The Male Room #20

The last challenge for September begins at The Male Room today. And it's definitely a very seasonal theme this fortnight.

I had such an enjoyable time creating this card with one of my treasured Lili of the Valley stamps. In my opinion they do cute like no-one else and I love the added challenge of trying to make their stamps fit my preferred CAS style. Do you think I managed it?

I had this image of one of my grandsons having fun riding his bike throught Autumn leaves and making a huge tidal wave of them shoot out from behind. And that's what I tried to create on my card.

Some of the leaves are second generation stamping and I kept all the colours for both the leaves and the bike image to autumnal shades. Boy oh Boy!

Stamps: LOTV, Boy-Oh-Boy; Clearly Besotted, Design A Tree
Inks: Memento, rich cocoa, cantaloupe, tangelo
Promarkers: blush, dusky pink, satin, ivory, cool grey 1 & 3, marsh green, mustard, raw sienna, spice, caramel, cocoa, umber

My fellow teammies have done a fantastic job with their interpretations of this theme - check them out here.

So pleased you dropped by today, thanks so much. And keep crafting!
