Autumn Flora And Fauna Inchies

Brrrr! Good morning everyone on a rather chilly Monday. Hoping that you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was rather busy as I had my younger daughter home from uni for the weekend and I had DT work to do plus preparations for a card making class I'm teaching this morning. My designing didn't get done until the evening whilst I watched the Strictly results followed by the X Factor results and then Downton Abbey (wasn't it sad yesterday).
Now I must stop waffling on as there's a new challenge today over at Make My Monday. We're continuing Caz's Autumn theme and this week the challenge is to make Flora and Fauna Inchies for Autumn.
Here's my inspiration for you which is a little collage:

The base of my collage is a piece of recycled cardboard from a cereal box and I covered it with some rather lovely handmade paper with leaves and flower petals embedded in it.
I made the inchies using a Magenta cling set - CSET28 and chose the floral tiles. I stamped them with VersaFine Vintage Sepia and Spanish Moss and then coloured them with layers of Distress inks, Promarkers and Prisma pencils.
I assembled it as you see, adding the cute little owl from the Inkadinkado 97729 Bird Assortment clear set, coloured with Promarkers and some flourishes cut with a Sissix die from vintage music paper and coloured with Crushed Olive Distress ink. So there you have it - finished!

The Design Team have made some gorgeous projects to inspire you so do pop on over for a look and hope to see you there.

I'd like to enter my collage in the following challenges:
Corrosive Challenges - Flying Things
Delightful Challenges - Colours Of Fall
Scrappy Frogs - Something That Flies
Stamptacular Sunday - You Choose
Kaboodle Doodles - Squares Or Inchies

That's it for now so have a great day.
Fliss xx

LOVE your card. I really like the colors used and how you added a little swirl to the background. The added dimension of the butterfly is just right. Thanks for joining us at Stamptacular.

Hi Fliss
I never would have thought to display inchies in such a way.
You certainly captured Autumn.

I love your stack of bright inchies Fliss and the owl is the perfect addition! I couldn't believe Downton - spend the entire episode snivelling on the sofa! Vx
