My 100 post already! Daring Cardmakers - Forever Autumn



My favourite season " Autumn. All those rich colours and rustling leaves. Scrunch and crunch. I made the background using the technique used on my previous post. I added the small black leaves by using tissue paper. The effect is like drying leaves. I stamped the gold leaves using the left over gold (acrylic) painted paper. I added some yarn from the knitting I am currently doing. It was a joy to make this as I have a very busy week as my partners arthritis is not subsiding. He has lost a lot of weight and is shaky too so has been able to do very little.

First of all, congratulations on your 100th post Pascale, it’s surprising how quickly the count goes up isn’t it!

Your card for the DCM’s is a stunner this week. I love seeing your cards because you always manage to create something out of the ordinary. The leaves look so opulent and the background technique is one I must add to my list of things to try.
