The current theme on the Artful Ideas Flickr group is to create an ATC with 'Autumn Romance' as the theme.
This gave me the opportunity to use my new 'Falling Leaves' stamp set from Stampers Anonymous (Tim Holtz collection).
I used some sticky back silver tape (the type used by electricans I believe) and stuck it to some card. I then coloured the silver side with three colours of alcohol ink - Terracotta, Pesto and Raisin. Once dry, I stamped on a few of the leaves using Stazon. I'm not sure if this is the right sort of ink to use as the image wasn't very clear. It was however just about clear enough for me to cut the leaf shapes out.
I cut out a piece of card measuring three and half inches down (usual ATC size) and five inches across. Once the two sides were folded, the little doors were formed and it folds up to the usual ATC size of two and half inches across.
I coloured the card with several colours of Distress Ink - Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain. I splattered a little water over the top to create the white dots. Once dry, I stuck the leaves onto the doors with E6000 adhesive.
I wish I could say we've had a lovely Autumn day here today, but I can't as it been pouring down with rain for most of it! At least it's a nice day for crafting anyway.
