I’m using this card for two challenges at doCrafts:
1. ABC Open Challenge – E for embellishments
2. Tilda Magnolia Challenge – Autumn
Maybe it’s cheating a little, but it gives my brain a rest!
I coloured Tilda with Whispers Dual Tip Brush pens & then covered her with Anita’s 3D Glaze – I obviously used a little too much, because the colour has run slightly!
The dark gold backing paper & the ribbons are from Sarita in California, the stamps are from Jen in Washington – state that is! And the jewelled brad in the centre of the flower is from Jen’s friend, Rachel. Thus, the American connection! Thank you to all of them for contributing to my crafting addiction! 🙂 The flowers are paper & I coloured them with dark green, russet brown & gold pens. I then used a dark gold glitter glue on the middle flower. I considered adding more flowers, but I think that would be OTT. The paper I used for the matting & layering is a double-sided 12″ x 12″ sheet from Capture The Magic. They had a sale a while ago & I got some great papers for very little. The tiny gold flowers brads are from my stash.
News from my garden – the birds are definitely back & the other night, when I went out to refill the feeders I disturbed a hedgehog! I don’t know who was more surprised, me or it! It will probably be hibernating soon, so now I have to make sure I leave food out every night so that it builds up its fat stores! As if I don’t have enough to think about!
Love & light to everyone
