It's time for our 6th challenge at Always Use Rubber and today we would like to see something to do with the seasons Summer or Autumn. And as usual, it must include some hand - not digi - stamping.
I've chosen my favourite season, Autumn, for a rather retro style card, the kind of thing that was fashionable when I first started stamping about 20 years ago. Maybe it's due for a revival!
The leaf background is made using a large background stamp, stamped with Versamark ink and then brushed with mica pearl powders in gold and copper with a few tiny specks of green, then lightly spritzed with water to set the powders.
The band across the front has the sentiment stamped and embossed in gold onto torn vellum. There were always going to be gold die cut leaves added, but I've added a few more than originally planned because it's so long since I used vellum that I'd forgotten just how much even the lightest of adhesives shows through it!
