When I was a kid I used to love kicking through autumn leaves - wet or dry, didn't matter which. I still do it when we're out walking the dog. I also used to chase pigeons in Trafalgar Square. I'm proud to report that I resisted the urge (just) on my most recent trip to London ;)
Playing along with a few challenges with this card. I've used the new Trendy Leaves set from STAMPlorations. I wet a piece of mixed media card, then stamped the leaves using Big & Juicy Spice inkpad and let the colours blend and run. It must be at least 10 years old but there's still plenty of ink in it, even though there aren't as many different shades as there used to be!
The sentiment is from the latest Winnie & Walter release, Winter Woodland. The panel is mounted onto chocolate coloured card which has a hint of pearlised sheen to it.
I'm entering it into the following challenges:
The Card Concept, but what style? They might think it's a bit too grungy for clean and layered, so maybe I'll be shabby chic.
