Autumnal Shades


I have had some time to play with my Uniko stamps this afternoon and decided to play along with the latest challenge over at Uniko which is:

I love the rich oranges and yellows in this photo and came up with 2 CAS one layer designs:

I used one of the discontinued butterfly stamps in shades of orange and yellow and combined them with one of the new sentiment stamps.

Here I inked up the fab stripe background and used the leaves from Natures Treasures as a black silhouette.  The sentiment is from Simple Sentiments.  I shall link this up at the Happy Little Stampers September CAS challenge which is to use a silhouette and at AAA Cards which is another autumnal challenge.

I hope you like them :)
