City Crafter 230

Good morning!!

I'm hosting this week at City Crafter and the challenge I have set is to 
Focus on the sentiment
Create a card or project where the sentiment is your focal point

Inspiration photo

I've been playing a lot with Autumnal colours and my card this week features a sentiment about nature


I printed an ombre card and first stamped and embossed the BG before cutting an aperture for my sentiment which is slightly recessed


The leaves and acorns were coloured by sponging various inks onto previously white CS

Wow Ros, the texture on the card front is just gorgeous, it's so soft and subtle! Just love the window idea, I really need to try that sometime! Your leave and burlap are fabulous and the sentiment is perfect! Such a great make, hugs :)
