Miss you!

Hi again! Another post from me today as I have tried out a new technique and wanted to share.

There are a couple of challenges that I wanted to participate in as well. 

Firstly over at

Cuttlebug Mania - the theme is Autumn

and over at Casology, the cue word is 'Brown'

Here is my card -

I started with a Crumbcake base and then cut strips of different 'earthy' colours and glued them directly to the base. I used my Framelits Circle Collection to die cut a circle to mount my leaf onto.

The leaft is a die from Impression Obession. I have dropped spots of alcohol inks onto a transparency sheet, misted with alcohol blender fluid and then pressed glossy coated cardstock on top. It created this beautiful colour changing leaf. I have shaped the leaf with my stylus and using the glossy cardstock gives it an amazing shine!

I have been very inspired by Kittie and her tutorials are just awesome. You will find the tutorial for my Autumn leaf HERE

I have stamped the sentiment using Cajun Craze ink.

I will be sending this to my son as I miss him very much. After a great phone conversation today, I had to make him a card.

That's it (I think) for me today. 

Thanks so much for looking xx
