Woodware Design Team Challenge - Inspired by the colours of Autumn

I was not sure if I would enjoy this challenge or not... as although I love the colours of Autumn, I do not often go down that road when I pick colours for my work!  but I surprised myself and really enjoyed it...

I mentioned last week about re-visiting old stamps and the one I have used is one that I designed when I had my license with Stampedous in 2001. It is a favourite of mine and along the years I have used it in lots of different ways [If you like a challenge try paper piecing it- it is a challenge but well worth the effort!] It's very giving and never seems to go out of fashion.
The stamp is:
XXP001 Garden Sampler
I have scored and folded a 14cm square gate folded card. It made a nice change from just mounting the panel on a normal square card.

It's difficult to see the highlights on the colouring but I have used the clear Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen to make the detail pop.  

The greeting come from a brand new set called:
FRCL207 Ribbon Banners
the greetings can be stamped on a ribbon banner or used individually as on this card.
In the corners I have used silver 'Metals' which I have coloured orange using a Sakura Identi Pen. The coverage is excellent and of course you can also use the pens on your Peel Off's .

For all the stamping I have used the Coffee Bean Brilliance inkpad. It's a great colour for a more muted effect.

If you have enjoyed this card why not pop along to the Woodware blog to see what the other designers in the team have produced!
