Autumn Colours and Christmas Cheer

Morning everyone, today I have an Autumn inspired card and a few Christmas cards.  The Autumn leaves card and the two Christmas cards were made with Papermilldirect special offer card, white linen, mocha brown and ocean blue, pop over to their special offer section where you will find an array of beautiful card.

This week's theme is Autumn colours, I love Autumn and my background is full of oranges, reds, yellows and a little brown.  I dabbed distress inks onto an acrylic block, spritz with a little water and stamped it onto white linen card, stamped the sentiment from Inkylicious and decorated with Gold Sandgrain die cut leaves.  The panel was mounted onto a mocha brown card blank.

These two Christmas cards were made for Karin's Only Christmas Cards Facebook Page, it's been fun making a card each week and I will have at least 50 cards at the end of the year.  Again I have used Papermilldirect special offer card, the colorflute in the Tabriz Blue (not much of this left!) and Gold but there are some other colours available too. The  acrylic block technique was used on one and just matting and layering on the other.

That's all for now, thank you for taking a look and for any comments left, they are really appreciated.  I will be back again soon with some more Oak House Studio makes for the Take 5 Challenge.
