Colours of Autumn

Hello my crafty friends. What an awful morning we've had, bucketing with rain and really gusty winds, the leaves were blowing off the trees. Now, however, there isn't a cloud in the sky....the anomaly that is British weather I guess!!

In keeping with the weather I have another autumnal card to share with you.

 I used  another of my new Stamp Fairy images that I coloured with my Promarkers. I tried lighter hair today for a change and was quite chuffed with myself as I am not the best hair colourer in the world (nor can I speak english apparently!!).
The papers were lurking in an A4 folder that I had long forgotten but work beautifully. Whilst in a rummaging mood I unearthed my embossing powders and inked up a die-namics die cut and stamped the sentiment into the warm powder. I'd forgotten what a great technique that is so be warned...there may be some more coming along!! Rusty ribbon and the complimentary button came from my stash and now I am off to join in these challenges.

That's enough waffling from me, I'm off to rearrange the bedroom furniture into it's winter position...don't I know how to live on the wild side!!?

 I hope whatever you are up to that it's a good day for you and see you soon xx

You are absolutely right, your dp's are perfect. I really like your technique for your sentiment, looks almost as though you've burnished it into copper, very cool for your Fall card. Thank-you for sharing with us at Crafting With Dragonflies,
