Autumn card using stencils

Today I have an autumn card for you, with beautiful warm colors. My favorite palette.

I used various stenciling techniques that I am going to walk you through on the video. Check the shine on all those leaves!

The leaves design come from a new stencil by Tim Holtz and I also had to create a woodgrain background using one of his latest stamp sets. I used distress inks to color everything and did some embossing too to add that beautiful textured shine. And can you spot the burlap card base?! Perfect for every fall card.

    Wow what an amazing mix of textures Vicki! Love all the fabulous colours. Do you get autumn coloured leaves in Greece? 🍂

      Yes of course, Greece is in the Mediterranean and we enjoy all 4 seasons including snow 🙂
      For some reason many people think Greece is an exotic country … maybe because we get so many tourists in our islands during summer !

        That would be me. Duh! I thought we could go to Greece some year to escape our Canadian winter. 🇨🇦

    Beautiful card… I thought it was great before you put the wood grain on top, but WOW, it really added to the card. I like your choice of colors and your blending technique. Thank you.

    Vicky, this looks great and I definitely love it! I don’t have such a stencil but a leave die from Tim Holtz. So I will try to make my own stencil and work a card like yours!
    Thanks for the detailed video!
    Have a great day!
