Simple card


A challenge was set from a member on UK Stampers so I had to have a go!! The challenge is to design a card with a "maximum of two stamps, one colour of ink, one colour of embossing powder (can be the same or a tonal one). No pre-printed background papers! Can't wait to see what you come up with!"

So after a bit of a think I decided to use an autumnal theme. I used one main stamp of a tree and the other stamp to be a leaf. I stamped these with brown ink and then I was thinking how windy it has been today and I wanted to caputre the wind! So I put some glue in swirls on the card and put copper embossing powder over this. Quite like the swirls and using embossing powder in another way!! I think this is more of an idea/technique card as I would want to add more layers and messages if it was meant to send to somebody!
