Autumn Sunset

I made this card for the October edition of Craft Stamper which is on sale now. The theme was Autumn.
It was hot and sunny when I made this card, but now I can feel the Autumn in the air!
One of my favourite stamps is the Clarity Stamp Birch Trees, which looks beautiful if you repeat stamp it to create a forest effect. In order to brayer the background sunset without turning the Birch trees orange, I coloured the trunks using my clear Versamark pen, then heat embossed them using clear embossing powder. This creates a resist which you can brayer over. The doodled line around the edge of the image creates an effective frame.
