Autumn Rainbow

Today's card is rather Autumnal in feel...but the stamp I used is actually a Christmas stamp called 'Snow Dust' by Penny Black. I started by making a rainbow in Autumnal colours, watercolouring with Distress Inks (Mowed Lawn, Forest Moss, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick & Seedless Preserves).I then stamped the image and sentiment (from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual) in black ink, then heat embossed them using clear powder. I distressed the edges of the panel a little, then matted it on to some kraft card.

Beautiful card, Helen! I love the fall colors and the artsy look of your blended background. Beautiful CAS design too -good idea to leave empty space to both sides of your main panel. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
