I sponged the tags with the new Fall and Winter Distress Inks.

SDC 43 Non Traditional Christmas

So no use of Red and Green and it's a Stampotique only week!
I stamped on both cards Jo Capper-Sandon's star as background with versamark. On the 1st card I brayered with Adirondack Sailboat Blue and used Denim for the stamping and sponging. On the 2nd card I used Adirondack Purple Twilight and Eggplant. Put crackle accents on the eyes and on the buttons of the shirt.

Couleurs d'automne

Another one for Just For Fun with the same resist technique.
This time I used fall foliage colours as these are at the moment my favourite ones. I was too late for the colour challenge last week, so I combined the two themes on this card :-))

Bon Voyage

Speedy The Cat's Friends Challenge - Your Favorite Technique -
Just For Fun - Do you have a favourite technique? -
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Times Gone By -
I just love doing resist techniques. On this card I used versamark for the stamp with the names of the cities, then brayered over it with Distress Fall Ink Gathered Twigs to bring up the image in 'white'.


For the challenge on Less Is More - a one layer card with the theme leaves -
I sponged, with help of the remains from a Die Cut Oval, using fall distress inks Ripe Persimmon & Gathered Twigs and glued 2 leaf stickers on the card. Finished with ribbon (the yellow is in fact orange, but the scanner is colour-blind I guess) and a golden pen.
Also for Created By Hand - Leaves / Leaf Die Cuts -
