It's Saturday so it's time for another weekly Allsorts Challenge. This week Brenda has chosen the theme and it is
This week we have 2 fantastic prizes for you:
Firstly a stamp from Lavinia Stamps
Tim Holtz On the Edge Pennants die
Here’s my card.
I struggled a bit with this theme as I don’t really own much in the way of dedicated “autumn” stash, so I had to get a bit creative. I decided to make a scene in autumn colours centred around the nearest thing I have to a bare branch tree stamp, and to make an autumnal sky by blending some of my new DO inks and using a mask and hone made stencils for the sun and hills. I then over stamped and embossed my tree, hedgerow flowers and butterflies, mounted the scene simply and added a generic sentiment that I thought suited the general atmosphere of the card.
Stamps: tree - Penny Black “Fantasy” (3880K); hedgerow flowers and butterflies - “Meadow Flowers” free with Cardmaking magazine; sentiment - LotV “Everyday Grungy Messages”;
Media: Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks;
Paper and twine from my stash.
