We have a fabulous new challenge running over at Anything But A Card for this month either
depending on which hemisphere you reside in (we are a fully global challenge site !)
And more exciting is that we have a wonderful array of fabulous talent joining us on the Design Team from this month so I hope you will welcome Rita Marie, Heather, Toni, Rupa, Pallavi, Ruth, Neva, Lynne, Elaine and Jo. Some of us old ones are still there! but I am sure you are going to love a wonderful selection of new and fantastic projects and styles from around the world.
And so … (as I am very much in the north) to my Autumn Magic hanging. I am still playing around with Autumn Distress Inks: Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and Aged Mahogany. I have used them to create the background and for the stamping on this tag with the top cut off.
I love this pumpkin stamp from the Tim Holtz Halloween Blueprint Stamp Set. I added some Dimensional Glaze to the stalk for a bit of definition.
I have made some more flowers using the Tattered Florals die and I used the same technique on the Tattered Leaves too.
I mounted my (topless) tag onto a piece of mount board stained with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. I then used Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Crackle Glaze and Nougat Paint for the crackle finish. I wasn't sure whether it would work over the Distress Ink, but I didn't want to introduce a new colour. I am pleased to say it works well.
I finished off the piece with this lovely quote by William Cullen Bryant.
Thank you for joining me today and I DO hope you will hop on over to ABAC to see the fabulous projects from the rest of the Design Team and also join in the fun!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
