Colour challenge: Autumn’s Bounty

The ‘Less is More’ challenge this week is a colour one, autumn’s bounty. I have a few stamps from Stamps Happen with designs by D. Morgan. One of them is a lovely autumnal one with the  inscription: The Earth Becomes A Colored Quilt When Autumn Comes Along. I love the picture guide on the front but I don’t love colouring it in! When stamped it is a very sketchy outline. Anyway as it fits so well with the challenge I decided to give it a go.

Materials used:
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
When Autumn Comes – Stamps Happen
A5 Kraft card blank
white stamping card
orange card
Spectrum Noir Pens

I stamped When Autumn Comes onto the white card with the black ink, coloured it in with the Spectrum Noir pens. I then trimmed trimmed it, matted it onto orange card and attached to the card blank.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.


I would like to enter this card into the Less is More Week 192 Challenge


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
