Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge No. 6

Yay, back for another go, now I know the sketch had a decidedly summery sunshine feel to it, but I was just looking at the peace and plenty stamp set and this idea just took me (I also used some Hero Arts stamps that just happened to match the ones on the peace & plenty set). I really love the warm autumnal colours of this card, and the weather here of the past few days has definitely matched the autumnal feel!

I used a versamark inkpad with the leaves drifting around the background of the orange. I love Waltzingmouse sentiment stamps, they always come out so clear - I never worry that they are going to smudge around the edges like some. The leaves were stamped onto scraps of paper using gold, copper and starlite black brilliance inks, hopefully you can see the shimmer in the photo.

Hope you like.

You did a super job making a sunny layout into a beautiful fall card! Love the shimmery leaves.
