Autumn Colours - SSW#18

Hi folks, and happy middle of the week to you!

Time for another of Arlana's lovely sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This is the sketch for this week:

We had a sponsor to work with, Jen from Say It With Stamps. She makes lovely word art, sentiments and backgrounds, all digitally - perfect for printing your own sizes. She has put up a great prize for the winner this week - you get to choose two monthly sets, or up to $10 worth of mix and match images - how cool is that!!

I used an autumn word background and sentiment from her collections. We had free reign with our images, so I chose to use my own again, which is the leaf I used the other day for another DT. (designed by myself and available at Delicious Doodles).

I coloured the image with inks and daubers before cutting it out and layering with foam pads for extra dimension. The flowers are made from the usual punches and some inky bits.

Sorry, but my pic is a bit fuzzy, but the words read: 'Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~ Albert Camas'. I finished the card off with some gold stickles.

Your turn now. Get yourself over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and have a look at the lovely DT creations. Have a play with the sketch, and see what you can come up with, go on - have a go!
