Totally Papercrafts ... Autumn :-)

Hi All :-) Hope you're all looking forward to a nice weekend and whatever your plans ,, hope it's a good one :-)

Before moving onto the challenge we have some sad news ,, Scoopy has decided to step down from the team :-( I would like to wish her all the very best and I know we will still be friends and teamies on the HM&F challenge so its not goodbye really :-)

This week on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge it is Scoopy’s turn to choose the theme for the last time ( for now,, we hope she will come back soon ) and she chose ,,,,

AUTUMN !,, now Autumn to me means leaves, Halloween, and Guy Fawkes, wind, rain, browns greens, oranges, reds ,, ,,,,, lots of scope there to join in !! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and we have a fab parcel of goodies on offer !

Also the Stamp Fairy is sponsoring too so the winner will get a $9 gift certificate to the store :-)

I followed the fab sketch on the Less is More Challenge and must admit I do like how this turned out ! I stamped a leaf, a clear stamp from Stampendous, using Vintage Photo distress ink onto watercolour paper and spritzed with water ( after watching this fabby tutorial by Joy on the Hero Arts Blog). I then cut it out and went around the edges with more ink. The base card is SU Crumb Cake ( bought from Mandi) and I stamped a small square with a script stamp with Hero Arts Grass chalk ink and matted this onto a square of SU Old Olive card. I used some twine to wrap around and added a bow and a Hero Arts sentiment.

Thanks for looking, the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the TPC to see them :-)
