Inspired by Autumn

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.  First of all, thank you so much for all the fabulous  comments you left on my last post, it is very much appreciated.

There is a competition over at Invisible Image 'Inspired by Autumn' and this is what I came up with:


The words are:  The autumn leaves drift by my window, the autumn leaves of red and gold.  I think Nat King Cole and Matt Monroe sang it - crikey! that's showing my age!

Here is the link to the competition:

I have used the Classic Face stamp from Visible Image.  The leaves I embossed with an embossing folder from Sheena Douglass.  I coloured them with Radiant rain ink, and although you can't see it, sprayed some silver sparkle on them from Crafter's Companion.  The background, window frame and sentiment are coloured with Pan Pastels, and the sentiment I did in a word document.

Please come and join in, we would love to see your creations - till next time x
