Colours of Autumn

The theme this month at Scrap and Yap, a monthly craft group which I help run, is 'Colours of Autumn'.  Every month we concentrate on a different theme.  Although we started off as a scrapbooking group we found that our members wanted to make cards and other papercrafts so we choose a different topic each month and bring along examples which we've prepared.

Every since the leaves started changing colour I seem to have been using autumn colours so this challenge has been really fun.  Here is one of the cards:

This is a simple distressed ink backround, sponged and flicked with water.  So simple and still one of my favourite kinds of backrounds.  I stamped the flowers, gorgeous Inkylicious Alliums, and added the white highlights.  My husband saw it and loved it and said I absolutely couldn't add anything else.  So I left it at that.  Sometimes simple is the most effective.

I often look at nature and marvel at the richness and incredible variety of the colour palette which our amazing Creator God came up with.  He must have had such fun - a giant easel and limitless and inspired creativity.  I'm so grateful for colour!  Thank you, Father God.
