It really is Autumn

Over at SCD it is a new month and a new challenge this week the challenge is partly freeform providing you use autumn colour "orange, reds, browns". To be given freedom to use the colours on anything was quite daunting. But I love Autumn colour and the season is one of my favorites (despite the windy rain we have today). So here is my effort.
I cut out a large leaf shape from my new cricut create, (oh yes my latest toy is fab) and used DI dried marigold, spiced marmalade and worn lipstick. I then edged with inka gold and kept rubbing it as the you rub the shin gets brighter. then stamped with walnut stain text and my lovely butterfly swirls added flowers in red and touched up butterfly in red sparkle I then added a smaller leaf that is DI scattered straw and edged again in inka gold. I have called my piece "FALL" well I couldn't fit on Autumn LOL. The leaf is backed with a sparkle brown paper. I am now off to get ready for the Bramford crop tomorrow Yippee.
