Colours of Autumn

Good morning!

Autumn is slowly creeping in ... the trees are changing from dark green to rich gold, umber and red 
We had rain last night for the first time in ages and at 5am there was a thick fog around - A typical Autumn morning ... Now the fog has lifted and there is a stillness around, I think the trees will hold on to their leaves for a good while yet.

Over at The Mixed Media Card Challenge they are asking that we create a mixed media card using the Colours of Autumn with optional elements of leaves or metal

With under a week to go before the challenge finishes I got around to making a card

I water coloured the outer part of my card with some gold shimmerz paint to create a 'frame' for a wine label I got from the lovely Jacqueline
The wine label was shaded with various inks and then I did some stamping on top

Each of my leaves were cut from white CS and then shaded by sponging on different coloured inks ... a coat of Mod Podge dimensional was then applied to give them a glossy look
The fabric strip "colours of autumn" I had in my stash from an old scrapbook kit

To finish I added some berries (my trees are full of them right now) some fine threads and sequins and a little metal butterfly

I'd also like to enter this at The Card Concept Challenge

It's my first time playing here and I think my card would come under the Freestyle Collage

I hope you have a lovely Saturday ... Thanks so much for looking in

Till soon
