Fall Colours....

Today's Bellariffic Fridays theme was to use fall colours on your card - let me tell you it's fall here!!!  I had my furnaces cleaned out yesterday & it was chilly having the front door open; I almost had to put on socks & I hate socks!!

For my card today I went with some old school techniques - I used a brayer (my friend Leslie had reminded me of this technique a few weeks ago so thanks for the inspiration) and I embossed my image.


I started with some glossy card stock and brayered Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie ink onto the piece, they around the top edge I sponged on Ruby Red ink.  Once it had dried I stamped my image Shady Leaves with versmark ink then used some copper embossing powder.  As you can see there are a few spot where the embossing powder & ink didn't stick, but I liked the effect so went with it.  The strip of ds paper is from my friend Jeannie who lent me her WeR memory keepers 6x6 pad called Autumn Splendor

Please stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the creations, and next weeks theme is HALLOWEEN so get your ghost, goblins and pumpkins inked up and email your cards to Em by Thursday to be included in the roundup and you could win some bella bucks

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day

Now that's what I'm talking about - I have a ton of embossing powders that haven't seen the light of day in years. What's old can be new again! And BTW, I love that it didn't fully stick everywhere, life is full of imperfections isn't it?

I haven't embossed in well over a year and believe it or not I have every colour. This card is beautiful Dana, makes me want to get my embossing powders out. Perfect Fall colours.
