Make My Monday Halloween or Not

Morning everyone, hope you're all well and ready for  a new week at the Make My Monday  Autumn challenge and this week Caz wants us to use Orange and Black (Halloween or Not).
 Here's my inspiration piece 
Pop across to Make My Monday to see the rest of the teams fabulous work.
I used one of my favourite stamps (pears) from Chapel Road Artstamps, stamped with black Archival ink onto  shiny card which had been brayered with Spice from Big and Juicy. I used the ink from the first roll of the brayer to get rich colours. The leaves were stamped in the same way, sorry I can't remember where the stamp is from. The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque (formerly Elusive Images). I adhered the cut out images with sticky fixes to black cardstock.



I took this photograph outside  on a lovely sunny 
 morning. I think  it quite nicely shows up the shiny card.







Looking forward to seeing your creations but I won't be able to leave comments untill the end of the week. I am spending a couple of days with my daughter in Harrogate and then York. If time allows  I will be blog hoping and leaving comments sooner.
 take care
xx Suzi B xx

Really fabulous card Sue. I so love that gorgeous pear stamp and it looks great with that ink colour (the only one of those ink pads I have too!).
Hope you have a lovely break.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Oooh, do love this Sue. I agree with Fliss that pear stamp is a stunner and is perfect on the brayered background.

I didn't realise your Daughter lives in Harrogate - so does mine but she's bringing our little Izzy down to stay with me for a few days tomorrow. Enjoy your stay with your Daughter.

Hugs
