Simon Says Wednesday Challenge

I  thought that it was about time that I entered a Simon Says Challenge .    I am an avid follower of their blogs and I have learned so much from the wonderful design team - especially their videos which are so informative.

This Wednesday's Challenge is to use a rubber or a clear stamp and one of the companies being showcased is Clearly Besotted Stamps.    I am a great fan of this UK company, they offer beautifully designed stamps and amazing customer service.

This is what I have come up with . . . . . .

Autumn Leaves

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps and Dies 'Leafy Accents'
Sentiment Clearly Besotted Stamps 'Its Your Birthday'

The background was created by lightly sponging with Versa Magic Chalk Ink in 'Red Brick',  Persimmon',  'Mango Madness'   and Memento 'Pear Tart'.  The leaves were then stamped using the same colours. 

I masked off a narrow strip at the bottom of the card which I then sponged with 'Red Brick' and finished off with some twine and a few crystals.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
