Falling into Autumn

It's rare these days that I get to play along in challenges just for fun so I'm pleased I got time tonight to make a card which fits into 3!   The inky paws challenge at Newton's Nook and the Less is More challenge are both autumn colours and addicted to CAS is the codeword of stencil.

I used my favourite puddy-cat from Newton's Birthday Bash to be the focus of my card by extending the string with a black pen - colouring him with copics and adding glossy accents to the balloon before fussy cutting him out.   Having a ginger Tom seemed the obvious way for Autumn colours!

The background of arrows I thought was appropriate to add to the movement and was created with stencil paste coloured with acrylic paint and sprinkled with glitter.

The sentiment is from Avery Elle's Cake and Candles stamped in black and matted with a hand cut flag.

Here are the links to the challenges if you want to play along too.


  1. Looks like you really discovered embossing paste for yourself :) Awesome job on coloring the paste, I haven't tried that particular technique often so far. Your slooks amazing!
