Autumn colours at Stamping Sensations

Good Morning! Is it all Autumnal where you are today? It is the first Sunday of the month and tuime for a new challenge at Stamping Sensations. Our theme this month is Autumn Colours.For my card this month I have used Inkylicious stamps, inked up with memento inks in olive grove, pear tart, espresso truffle, Rhubarb stalk and potters clay. The hills and sky were created with ink dusters, a mountain valley stencil, a sun stencil and more memento inks in dandelion and rosebud.

Our usual rules apply, you can enter up to three times, combine with other challenges, use any make of stamp......but can I please remind you.........we are a stamping challenge so must see a stamped image, sentiment or quote as the focal element of your artworkIt so upsets us to see names come out in the draw who are not eligible for the prize because they have not read the rules.

I've had a couple of lovely skype calls with Meg. She has shown us all the freebies she got during freshers week including a rather amusing Gray's Anatomy pen, and told us all about the first week of lectures she has had. She has also purchased her lab coat and dissection kit! She will be shadowing a GP later this month for a few days. Thanks for looking!


  1. What a lovely card!! I love Autumn ( as you may have seen from the numerous photos I took last weekend at Kew).. Glad Meg is settling in well and you've been able to catch up - isn't technology great to help you keep in touch!
