Autumn Colours


 The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday is Autumn Colours.  For my card I have used my favourite tree stamp and a very old leaf stamp, both Crafty Individuals and the lovely wording stamp from Inkylicious.  I have not seen much autumn colour yet this year, the tree opposite us is just starting to turn but all the others I can see are still very green. Withe the weather we are having I feel we have skipped Autumn and gone straight into winter!  There is lots of inspiration from the design team over on the challenge blog so hope you will visit them

Use your scraps

There is a new challenge at Try It On Tuesday and we are asking you to use your scraps, we all seem to have loads of scraps so now is your chance to use some of them up.  For my journal page I have used two scrap pieces of scrapbook paper torn in to stripa and layered onto my page.  The adorable little girl is an image I collected years ago and It always reminds me of my older sister when she was a child ( she could never see the likeness!)  The hearts, butterfly and bit of torn tissue are from my box of bits and pieces. The wording is from a vellum overlay piece of which I found a few in another box, no idea where they came from or why I had them.  I have a big box full of "empheria" from when I liked doing collage cards, think I really should put most of it in the recycling box but it went back in the cupboard.

For my card I made a background with Dylusion sprays which was far too bright so sprayed it with water and blotted it with a paper towel , I like the effect it gave,

Festive Things With Wings

I was sure I had done a scheduled post for this card On Sparkles Christmas challenge but it's nowhere to be found, after the palaver I have had over the last few days with blogger maybe I should not be surprised!  The challenge for September is Festive Things With Wings so I chose to use this pretty Inkadinkado stamps which I have had for ever.  The design team have some lovely inspiration for you ovr on the challenge blog so I hope you will pay them a visit.

Neat and tidy

The new challenge at Try It On Tuesday is "Neat and Tidy"  The design team have lots of ibspiration for you over on the challenge blog so hope you will visit them.  For my card I have used a DL card base. stamped the background with distress inks on an acrylic block and then stamped the poppy stamp over it.  I was undecided as to whether to coloui the poppies but decided I like them as they are.
