Good Afternoon Ladies I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far, mine has been busy Ive been cleaning windows and washing nets, so if it rains you can blame me, my mum always use to say that you are tempting the rain when washing windows, but mine were very dusty and really needed doing. Ive actually been waiting for the local farmer to plough the fields next to me but it seems that hes no hurry to do it so I decided it was time I got on and cleaned them.
Anyway as hubby is doing his volunteering this weekend at our local Steam Engine place I thought Id have a go at another couple of challenges, and this card is for Penny Black at Allsorts "Colours of Autumn" and Sir Stampalots "Autumn Breezes, Buttons and Bows". Ive used this gorgeous stamp from Penny Black its looks to me like a load of dandelion heads and grasses anyway for a change Ive used my promarkers and some watercolouring paper to stamp it out on and using a damp brush pulled out the colours from the edges. Then Ive used some orange and red pens around the edge and mounted it on two pieces of card one beige and the other brown.
The base card s 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of beige card and one of three papers from my Nitwit Downloads, this one is called "Autumn Enchantment" this first paper is a pretty all over sprig pattern on beige background, the second piece is an all over pattern of leaves and Ive used my leaf border and edge punch from Martha Stewart on this and stuck it to the bottom layer, the third paper is a dark red dotted paper thats been mounted on a piece of brown card.
Ive then wrapped a pretty organza ribbon around these layers and tied a bow, after which I mounted my image on top. The sentiment is one of Wendy Stentons stamps and this also was stamped onto a piece of watercolour card and mounted at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of I have stuck four leaf buttons own the right hand side to resemble falling leaves.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
