Autumnal Artist Trading Block

Today I decided to showcase the SERENITY plate and the TYPOGRAPHY plate.
I decided to create an artist trading block colouring the sides with Archival Re-inkers Orange Blossom and Potting Soil and then stamped the image with Potting Soil Archival Ink. I love the combination of the warm Autumnal tones and the detailed image. I also added an 'autumn' Chitchat sticker for added interest.
I added some die cut Frameworks which I coloured with Distress Paints Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge.
I adore this sentiment and I love the font too perfect for an Autumnal piece I thought!
Another wonderful sentiment from the SERENITY plate added to the opposite side of my block.
I stamped 'Life is good' to the top of my block and added some die cut Tattered Leaves coloured with Distress Paints, bending each of the leaves to give movement and colouring the edges of each of the leaves with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I also included three mini pumpkins to my design. I have also coloured the inside of my block with Archival Re-inkers, making it perfect to house a gift for someone who has a birthday during Autumn.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Gorgeous. Can we start with the block information? What die is this and what is the material used to make it? Thanks for sharing.

Hello Tracy,
This ATB is very interesting, I love what you have stamped and the added dimension makes me want to touch it. The palette is inviting because you have added that touch of Red. I really like it.
