Autumn flowers

Hello everyone

The challenge this month at Penny Black Allsorts challenge is Autumn colours and here is my card for the challenge -
This is a small card which I really enjoyed making. I usually make larger cards, 6 inch square being the smallest but this card is 4 inch square.
I began by matting and layering papers from a Docrafts Woodland folk paper pad onto a 4 inch square card blank. I also used Tonic's layering squares.
The image is from Penny Black's bouquets stamp set which I have coloured with the following Spectrum Noir pens and pencils -
  • CT4, GB5, OR1, GB10 and 017
  • FS2, FS3, TN3 and 004
  • GB6, GB7, GB8, EB5 and 087
  • IB1
I stamped the image 4 times, coloured and decoupaged it.
I cut the whole think out with scissors and then matted it onto a square of brown paper from the pad cut using Tonic's layering squares. I attached the whole thing to the card base with foam pads.
To finish I added some Glossy Accents to the centre of some of the flowers.
And that's it - a small, simple card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - - September challenge - Autumn colours
