Celebrate the Season

I purchased five of EunJi Jung's stamps that she hand carved 
herself then had copies made.
                         These stamps are spectacular and EunJi makes the 
                                                most amazing cards and art.  
This stamp inks up beautifully and in this instance I have stamped onto 
Mixed media paper and coloured with water and Zigs.

I have used red and orange and lots of water to lighten in places.

I was also very heavy handed with the Wink of Stella and this gives a wonderful
sparkle. Olive green for the stems. The die cut 'Celebrate' is from Papertrey.
A few sparkly gems and its all finished.


I am hoping Autumn refers to colours 
as in this instance the colour of the flower.

Again I am hoping the colours are
acceptable as Autumn

And let the card be accepted as Autumn colours.

three for three!!!

okay thank you very much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Funny how every challenge almost is Autumn and it's spring here, it always seems incongruous to me. Great image though Aileen and your card has showcased it nicely! Shaz in Oz.x
