Welcome Autumn

The weather has really changed over the past couple of weeks and it feels very Autumnal, a great excuse for an Autumnal card and a perfect time to showcase the HAYRIDE PLATE once again from Artistic Outpost.
I coloured the background of my card with Distress Ink and flicked with water. I stamped the vine to the top corner of my card with Black Archival Ink.
I created a window type frontage using the Vintage Cabinet Card die, adding several layers to add depth to my design. I stamped the frame and the background with the background stamp from the EPHEMERA BACKGROUNDS plate., stamping with Coffee Archival Ink and colouring with Distress Inks, again flicking with water. I stamped the young girl who is watching the stall with Black Archival Ink. I added a shelf using Art Parts, again coloured with Distresss Inks. Faux pumpkins have been added to the shelf along with signage and buckets of apples all from the HAYRIDE PLATE.
I have added a small pumpkin patch and sat the young boy within the pumpkins, I love his adorable little face! Again I have added a sign and included "pumpkin patch" using computer generated text. The pumpkins have been coloured with Distress Markers.
This picture shows the dimension on the frame, I love including dimension in my pieces. To complete, I have added the sentiment, stamped with Black Archival Ink and coloured with Distress Inks.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
