A U T U M N (2)

This is the second card I'm entering into the blogs listed below

On a piece of white card I placed a small circle to mask out the sun.  Using Distress Inks in:  'Faded Jeans', 'Fired Brick', 'Rusty Hinge' and 'Wild Honey' I coloured the card.  I removed the mask and drew 3 small birds in that area.  I stamped the butterflies using Archival Ink in 'Coffee' from IndigoBlu's Live, Laugh, Love Stamp Set

The sentiment is by Clarity Stamps,  was also stamped with the same ink pad

The card was then matted onto a brown, orange then white card

This is one of two cards that I'm entering on the blogs listed below

On an A5 white card stock I used a die to create the scalloped edge on the front of the card and ran 'Rusty Hinge' Distress Ink Pad across the scalloped area.
Next I stamped 4 leaves using IndigoBlu 'Live, Laugh, Love' stamp set.  I used Distress Inks in Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge to colour the leaves.  A light coating of 'Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax' by Creative Expressions was applied to each leaf.

I then cut a strip of white card, backed it with a piece of double sided adhesive sheet, removed the backing and applied 'Red Blaze Gilding Flakes,' by Creative Expressions, to this exposed adhesive sheet.  This was then buffed with a piece of 'RubIt ScrubIt' again by CE.  This was mounted on a matt of white card then black card and adhered to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment (from my stash) onto white card using Adirondack's Dye Pad in 'Pitch Black'.  Using two flag dies (CE) I cut the sentiment from the smaller die then a black flag using the middle size die.  I 'curved' the sentiment and adhered to the card front.

I used Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to secure the leaves on the edge of the card

I am entering this card to the following blog challenges:
