#218 Autumn Colours

Maike is hosting today's challenge, Autumn Colours

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Autumn colours theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT


I love autumnal colours and they go so well together with one of my favourite animals the fox. This cutie is one of Gerda Steiner's newest creations.


An Autumn-coloured Christmas card! I've used a stencil, my gelli plate, acrylic paint, stamps from Leoni Pujol and Sweet Dixie and dies from Joanna Sheen and Sizzix.


I used a die and vein stamp from Crafter's Companion and coloured all using Distress inks. It was matted onto copper mirri.


I used a Masterboard to create the background for this card and Oxide coloured card to die cut the leaves. Stamped and fussy cut the insects, added a Tim Hotz sentiment and gems to complete the card.


I have used Wild Rose Studio Stamp and papers coloured the cute Fox with Promarkers and added a Faux Silk Bow


I used a Spellbinders die for the cattails, a border die for an accent and various pieces from my stash. I then added some brown brads for interest and a Stampin' Up Happy Birthday sentiment.


I used a beautiful digital image from The Paper Shelter for my Autumn card. I made this card for one of my nieces for her upcoming birthday. I coloured the image with Copics, gelli pen, distress inks and pencil crayons. To complete the card I added some recycled silk flowers and a sentiment.


For this card I created a small Masterboard and then used Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves Die to cut my leaves out. The background paper is from Maja and I used a small piece of torn corrugated card to add a bit more interest and texture.


Nothing screams autumn to me more than acorns and oak leaves and toadstools, so this brand new design from Jane Gill at Woodware ticks all the boxes. I coloured it using distress inks and oxides, and layered it over some embossed card highlighted with gilding wax.


I love autumnal colours... my card today was a challenge to myself to see what I could come up with using plain white card, a printed image and some prism alcohol markers. I also used my scan n cut machine to cut out the main image, and the mats.

Hello, today I want to show you little box. I used kraft and red papers and hadnade flowers.


For my card I used layers of brown card & orange papers. I used a LOTV panel of a beautiful Autumn scene that I cut into 3 and finished with a strip of ribbon.

I Hello everyone!!! Here is my "Autumn Wishes" card, I used my favourite Tim Holtz distress ink pads for colouring die cut leaves and background. Stamped a cute sentiment from Mudra stamp set to finish my card. I hope you will like it. Lots of love...
I made my autumn colours card with strips of washi tape. See my blog for details

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!
