Inkspiration Challenge #73

Hey everyone!

It’s Inkspiration time! This week is a sketch and it is super easy…..but then again they all are. It’s the choice of stamp sets and colours that’s the hard bit! LOL!

The sketch –

So many possibilities isn’t there?! This week though I made a purchase that’s been a long time coming. My new SS is French Foliage. It’s all Teneale Williams fault!!! LOL! I saw this CARD and it inspired me so much I bought the SS and then CASEd her gorgeous card. Thanks Teneale!

I used the colours More Mustard, Early Espresso and Bravo Burgundy for my inking, very Autumny…don’t you think? Did you notice I used a bevelled window pane? I won a pack at convention {amongst other goodies}, so I decided to pull them out and have a play.

The More Mustard panel was sponged with More Mustard, Bravo Burgundy and Early Espresso and also stamped with two leaf types and  the splotches. The image panel started as Very Vanilla. The leaf was inked up in More Mustard, then I daubed Bravo Burgundy and Early Espresso on the edges for different colour graduations in the leaf. The sentiment is out of a current hostess set Because I Care {another set that Ten has me thinking about…LOL!}

I would have loved to use the Autumn Spice DSP, but I have none….YET! Instead I used the Woodland Walk DSP, which I think fits nicely representing bark.

Anyhoo, check out the rest of the DT and submit your creation at the Inkspiration Challenge Blog!

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Absolutely adore your card Kirsty and I too don’t have that SS as yet and due to Teneale’s inspiration I am rethinking this situation, she makes stunning cards of sets that don’t generally inspire me! Love the colours you have used too.


  2. Absolutely GORGEOUS card, Kirsty!! I LOVE fall colours and leaves so I’m drooling all over my keyboard with this beauty. Think I”m going to have to be enabled to get this set LOL! Fabulously done! Have a great week (((hugs)))


  3. Teneale is naughty, isn’t she? Guess what arrived in my order this week – French Foliage AND the DSP. I had manged to resist temptation until I saw her card. Love your take on it. I know I am going to have to CASE it too, lol


  4. Be still my beating heart! This is gorgeous! The clear frame really pops with the white ribbon. Speaking of white, the tiny matting in white helps to make this card exceptional!
