LIM week 192 Autumn's Bounty


It's colour challenge week on Less is More. My first idea for a card is actually the one below - where I was trying to get away from using leaves entirely on a card. 
If you go back a few posts you will see I now have a gelli plate and this is one of the prints I made the other day. I had impressed the leaf stencil on the middle of the piece and intended using it as a background as a whole. Then I had this idea! So I cut around the stencilled leaf and then using the tattered spellbinder die cut the other segments to form the backdrop. The sentiment is from a set by Hobby Art stamps.
I'm also entering it into the challenge at Allsorts which this week is Autumn.

Here's the other card, not really how I imagined it before the ink hit the paper - oh well.

Often turn out different to what we intended but looks good to me Lynn. And the Autumnal one right up my street - would fit in nicely at Allsorts this week.
