Incy Wincy Designs#59 - Autumn Colours

Well another week has gone by. Majority of the schools have now gone back & the College's & Uni's are now beginning to go back again. My daughter starts her new Uni course next week so she has her inductions to go to this week.

This week at Incy Wincy Designs we are challenging you to create a project using Autumn Colours. We are being sponsored by AI Factory who have the most amazing selection of digistamps & other digital images.


I thought I would combine the colours with a more masculine card this week as that really was the only way I could get my head round the colours really.


I used this gorgeous Ant which I coloured with Promarkers. The sketch was created by a friend of mine at Craftycardscrappers. I have been having a bit of a play with some distress inks which is what I used on the circular background. I think I am going to have a bit of a lookie at some tuts for these as I haven't got a clue whether I am using them right lol!!!! Here is a closer look at the image
Don't forget I have a fab candy running this month so pop up the page & enter xx Clare x
