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.
