Uniko - Autumn/Fall ....

.... Morning! I'm here with a card for our new challenge at Uniko - USC#43. The timing of our challenge couldn't be more perfect - today is that start of Autumn - and our challenge is to create an Autumn/Fall theme project with the optional twist of Halloween. My card is relatively clean and simple:

Stamps: Uniko - Originally Organic
Inks: Versamark
Dies: Memory Box - Cross Stitched Frames Borders #6 and #7; Uniko - Originally Organic
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copper Satin Mirri Card; Copics;p Wink of Stella - Clear; Copper Embossing Powder

I got inspiration for my card from the current challenge at Inspired by All the Little Things - IBALT#64. I used the colours of copper and blue and used autumn seed heads on my card. I die cut some copper satin mirri card and white card with this lovely cross stitched edged die. I stamped the greeting directly on the white panel in Versamark and heat embossed with copper powder. I stamped using my MISTI - I did a light stamp, coloured it with Copics, put it back in the MISTI and restamped with Versamark and then heat embossed. I cut out the finished image with the matching die. I added a touch of sparkle to the image with a clear Wink of Stella brush and finished with some pale aqua gems. On the inside I cut mat layer of copper card and added some more of the flowers to the white panel - I've left a space for me to write my message.

So elegant stamped in copper and the blue tones and embellishments are so pretty with it. A wonderful showcase of this stamp showing how it can be used year round. Thank you & Hugs Bev x
