I think my Mojo is back!

I've had a funny old week so far. It has been very busy and I haven't really sat down at my Craft table until this evening. This afternoon I went to a funeral and got there rather early, thinking it would take a good half an hour from work, when it was about fifteen minutes. I drove past some beautiful woodland and parked by some silver birches. Just sitting in the car and enjoying the colours gave me a real sense of peace. Glad I stayed in the car though as it was freezing when I got out - definitely Autumnal! This evening I have given myself time to craft and come up with this.
Stamps - Inkylicious
Inks - Adirondack dye
Technique - ink dusters
plus white gel pen

I wasn't sure if it needed anything else, like a sentiment top left. I even tried some punched leaves down the right hand edge, but in the end I left it just as it was.
There seem to be lots of Autumn themed challenges at the moment. I'm entering this card into:
Moving along with the times - Autumn leaves
Stamptacular Sunday - Photo inspiration
Thanks for looking!

  19. Hi Sal

    This is stunning.

    It looked like a photograph when I saw it on my dashboard!!

    Fantastic colours and just love the sky!!

    Love Jules xx

  20. This is beautiful Sally and I just love the autumnal colours (my favourites). Your reflection is excellent and so is your technique with the inkdusters. I haven't even played with mine yet after buying them at the last Stamp Magic show, eeek!

    BTW I think it would be shame to put a sentiment on your beautiful scene. I'd put it inside the card if it were me.
