A Spoonfull of Sugar this week #69 is 'Fall into Autumn', and what a fab title! So here it is using the'Wishing Tree image from The Greeting Farm and a freebie stamp which is a Sugar Nellie one I think, came with a Craft Stamper mag July issue.Used my new Tim Holtz Distress Inkpad (Walnut Stain) and washed over with a water brush. Owl is w/coloured with Koi's and googly eyes added. I got the inspiration from Marlene Ashby's article and her wonderful makes. They're so fab! Circle is hand cut with scallop scissors, red paper is from Funky Fairy's 'Love train' download and they're are 'recycling' in their challenge #34 so I've used white buttons from my hubby's old shirts, green paper is from 'Vintage' free papers from Shabby Princess, Simon Says Stamp challenge is a recipe '3 embellies, 2 papers and 1 image' but i think I've got 2 ;) Finished off with mini alpha stamps randomly cut into squares, and faux stitching. Hope you like this one, I'm off to a party tonight!
