I've made a clean, simple. one layer card. One of my favourite things about autumn is the way the leaves change colour, fall from the trees and then blow around in the wind. I tried to get that feeling in this card. I used masking tape to cover most of the card and sponged several shades of ink on the strip. Then I sprinkled some water on the distress ink allowed it to react with the ink and then lifted some off with a tissue - I like the spatter effect I got. Next I stamped on a very simple birthday sentiment and some falling leaves, stamping the outline image in darker ink and the solid image in lighter ink. On the inside I simply stamped some random leaves. I used the colours from this month's House of Card challenge and the theme of lovely leaves from the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.
