Color Dare Challenge #414

This is another make for the

Do pop over to the Color Dare Challenge and take a look at my teamies' makes!

This is today's colour scheme - isn't it amazing?
I love autumnal colours - I went with the top right leafy picture but it could equally well be bottom left. I added white in the card blank and gold...

I started with a rectangular white card blank and masked it with post-it notes so I had a strip to stencil using a Tim Holtz stencil and a combination of Crackling Campfire Distress Oxide and Distress Ink. 

I then added gold pen.

The next step was to add LeighSB Designs Tangled Maple Leaf, printed in two sizes, coloured with Copics and cut out. Leigh has done a colouring video for this here.
I added gold pen around these images.

Finally I added the sentiment on dimensionals, from Oddball Art Co Creepy Cute Chronicles. CCC122
I printed this in gold, trimmed it and added a little gold pen work.

And then a bit of black....

Hope you will join the challenge...

Happy Crafting!
