Daring Cardmakers - September week 1

It's that time of year again. I always feel more crafty in autumn. Summer just isn't a time where I want to sit and do crafty things and let's face it in the UK we have to make the most of our very few sunny days! As I'm typing this now it's raining, (again) so I'm going to officially call an end to the summer and declare it's autumn and so time to get some more craftiness going in my craft space! Luckily Becky who's set this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge must agree with me because we've been given a lovely autumnal themed Elemental Inspiration image to kick off the month.

"So the summer is coming to an end and there is a nip in the air.   Small signs of changing colours are beginning but I am loving that the sun is still shining.  It's Beckie here today to share with you this very Autumnal Element Inspirational Dare.

We would like you to pick out a minimum of three elements from the picture to design your card with.

It could be the stars, the leaves, pumpkins, texture from the socks or simply the colour.  This mood board is to help get your creativity flowing."

Here's the card I came up with. I picked out leaf shapes, the orange, all the colours, stars, pumpkin and the wood textures:

The big message in the middle is a Woodware stamp. The leaf stamp I made myself with Speedy Carve and I've used Memento inks to stamp with, Pear Tart, Tangelo and Morocco.
The little bits and pieces around are all bits from past Quirky Kits, little gems, sequins and wood shapes and the little foil tape.

Head on over to Daring Cardmakers and post us a link of what you've made if you have a go. :)
