Autumn in the air...

and

At least it is here in my area as I have had my first pumpkin spice latte and am getting my Thanksgiving/Autumn cards done.
The base card is cream linen card stock with a layer of rust card stock and a strip of cream cad stock.
The sentiment is from Impression Obsession’s “DIE174-W” cut from cream card stock.
To get the imaged area I took a large piece of water color paper and stamped the image from Impression Obsession’s “Bountiful Blessings” set by dabbing the image with Distress inks (aged mahogany, peeled paint, rusty hinge & wild honey) then spritzing it and applying it to the water color paper.
When it was dry I trimmed as per the sketch cream linen card stock and the stamped pieces and applied them to the front of the card.

P.S. You may see more of the images as I made a large piece of it!

Beautiful card Arlene I love those colours together. I enjoy the autumnal colours.
We are gradually getting warmer, although winter is trying to pack a final hissy fit at the moment, but the daffodils and Daphne are flowering, and the tulips are well under way - no buds as yet!
Sorry I am not commenting much, but I am busy sorting and packing up the house as I am selling and downsizing
Stay safe
