Hello everyone,

and welcome to another blogpost. I was on a roll today... lol. Happens sometimes, doesn't it ? I had a fabulous day in my craft room and created another card for a challenge. This on is for Stampingback, they have some lovely stamps and their theme for this month is "Autumn". I couldn't really think of an autumnal card so I decided to use my favourite Stampingback Stamp and use Autumnal colours for the background.

I started with stamping the leaves with Versamark and then heat embossed them with a cream embossing powder. This leaf stamp is not by Stampingback, but the rest of the stamps used, are. 
Next I coloured the background with Distress Inks and a blending tool. I used Dried Marigold, Rusty Hinge and Peeled paint. Next I put a stencil over the top and sprayed water through it, it lights up the wetted areas. You can just see the dots. I then accentuated the edges with the same colours and stamped the splatters on it. 
I stamped the ballerina with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with Copic Markers, cut her out and then die cut the oval out of cream card stock as I thought she didn't stand out enough on the background. I also stamped the splatters on this piece of card stock. The sentiment is a word from a phrase form one of the stamps that comes with the ballerina; I stamped it on the same cream card stock, cut it out and glued it on the card. Lastly I doodled around the card, the sentiment and the oval. 

Thank you for stopping by today !
