Fall in for our latest challenge at Stamping Sensations!

I can't say that autumn is my favourite season of the year (mainly because it's followed by winter!) but it does have aspects that I appreciate, including the misty mornings and mellow fruitfulness. Most of all, though, I like the colours. It's quite strange, as normally I prefer the cooler shades: blues, purples and greens. I think it is the combination of the autumn hues which appeals to me. So this month's theme at Stamping Sensations is right up my street, as it is

qti   AUTUMN COLOURS  tq s

Naturally you can interpret this in any way you like, as long as we can see some stamping as the main element of your project, along with typical autumn shades of green, yellow, orange, brown and red.

Our fab sponsor for October is Foil Play, who have a massive selection of products for card making and crafts, and they have very generously donated a £35 voucher for the lucky winner to spend in their online shop.

The main image on my card is the gorgeous Year Of Stamping Issue 9 - September stamp from Chocolate Baroque.

 I coloured the poppy pods with pencils (for some reason the colours are much brighter in real life than they appear on the photo) and added just a little colour at the top and bottom behind them to give a bit of depth to the background. I used Promarkers on the butterfly to make it stand out. The large poppy pod stamp is also by Chocolate Baroque and the sentiment is by Inkylicious. Leaves die by Cheery Lynn, and the background paper is from the Autumn Song Collection by Bo Bunny. Real poppy pod tops from my garden.

You'll find plenty of autumn inspiration over on the Stamping Sensations Challenge Blog, and my teamies would love it if you would visit their individual blogs too, where you will find all the details of how they created their beautiful projects. I look forward to seeing yours!

For the same reasons as you Autumn is not my favourite season Lynne, but the colours of the season are beautiful. And you have captured them perfectly in your pretty card.

Hope you have a good Sunday.

I'm not crazy about autumn either, but mainly because we get lots of rainy and foggy days. But the colours are beautiful. And I really like how you added all of those shades of orange, green etc. on your card. I looks amazing! xx

Stunning card Lynne! You already know I love Chocolate Baroque stamps and as always, you have used them beautifully. I have the same problem with photos when using pencils to colour.... It was lovely to see you and Sally on Sunday but I'm miffed with myself over your lost card. I still can't find it and bet it comes to light when I stop looking!

I just realised a card I'm about to blog fits the challenge so I'm off to link up!
