Autumn card

Happy saturday guy`s.
I have to apologise for the photo as the sun was beating through the window,creating shadows.But when i tried again later it was far too dark,so i`ve stuck to this one!
Ok image is Sugar Nellie,coloured with distress inks,and added a little glitter to her flowers.
The papers are MME,which i`ve distressed with forest moss.The leaves are made with my new x-cut punch and emboss.I put a selection of distress inks on my heat mat(which i have to say i got from poundland,it`s one of the baking sheets and it does it`s job)I used colours like rusty hinge,forest moss,peeled paint.Any of those colours,then spritzed with water.Got my card and smeared it into the ink,then when happy with the colour gave it a blast with the heat gun.Their were a few leaves when punched a little faded so just dabbed on a little more ink.The sketch is from the sugar bowl,so i cut out the circle with my nestie and lay the leaves around it.Pearls and buttons are from my stash.The little butterfly was punched from a set i got from tescos an age ago in their sale.
I have to say that i placed an order on wednesday at sir stampalot.If you have never ordered from them i can highly recommend them.They are excellent.The only trouble i had was that the postman came on thursday,i had a quick look,just letters.Got ready for work,walked out the door and what was sat in the porch but my blinkin parcel!!!!It had come already and now i didn`t have time to play cause i had to go to work!!!
So my next card will be using my new Tilda in leaves which is the main reason of getting the leaf punch.
They are so lovely at Sir Stampalot and have lots of gorgeous stuff too.
