Hello everyone, hope you're all well and had a lovely weekend. Mine was rather busy as I had yet another optician visit as they're still trying to get my glasses right (at the moment I can just about see to do the washing up!!!) as I can only wear them indoors. There was a lot of tutting this time as I saw a different optometrist who got rather cross as she said my prescription was completely wrong (well duh!) and the glasses have now gone for replacement lens. All fingers and toes crossed that they get it right this time as it's been going on for 4 months now and I'm rather fed up!
Anyway, enough whinging and on to the new challenge at Make My Monday. Joan has chosen a favourite of mine, Autumn Colours, which I love as I'm an Autumn girl by birth and in fact have a birthday I'd rather forget coming up soon - aargh!
I hope you like my inspiration which is the result of a hunt through my bits and pieces box where I
came across a piece of watercolour paper stamped with a Hero Arts
flower using Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Aged Mahogany Distress
inks. As it was cream, I sponged on Mustard Seed and Wild Honey DIs for a
lovely warm glow.
I then embossed a panel of kraft card with a Darice Autumn leaves folder
and swiped Versacolor Paprika over the raised areas. I added this to
the paper panel then tied round some rusty gingham ribbon before
sticking to the card.
I added some leaves (a very old Rubber Stampede image) which had been stamped by adding Distress re-inkers
to a paper towel to make an ink pad. I cut these out to leave a narrow
border and added them with foam tape for dimension.
I finished off with some text in a metal frame I've had for rather a long time! A Junkitz Tim Holtz set in antique copper.
Have a great week and see you soon.
