All The Good Things | Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! Challenge #026

Hi and thanks for visiting :)

Last Monday was the start of our latest fortnightly challenge over on the Aussies Who Love Stampin' Up! Facebook Group.

Our latest challenge #AWLSU026 is an Autumn theme challenge.

Myself and the other group admins will share our creations to hopefully help kick-start and inspire your creativity.

The layout for my card was inspired by the current Fab Friday #159 sketch challenge.


The inspiration I took from our #AWLSU026 Autumn theme was the colours and so for my colour palette, I used yellow, orange and brown/red tones.

My card base is Cajun Craze and I have layered a piece of the Cajun Craze striped designer series paper from the Nature's Poem pack.

The Koi fish image comes from the All The Good Things stamp set and I used sponge daubers to lightly & randomly apply my colours. I have used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie & Cajun Craze.
(Tip: start with the lightest colour first and work your way to the darkest colour).
This image was cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits.

I also used sponge daubers to apply ink to my sentiment stamp (using the same colours as the Koi), to give it an ombre look. Using up some cardstock scraps I had lying around I added some colour behind the sentiment. For these I used some Mango Melody & Pumpkin Pie.

To finish off the card, the Koi & sentiment pieces were glued together and then adhered to my card base using some Mini Dimensionals.

Thanks so much for your support and for visiting me today :)
