Autumn Fairy

Hello and thank you for visiting me - sorry, yet again, that I haven't been around for ages.  I have a quick post today as I am getting ready to visit my daughter tomorrow for a few days so have to try and take it easy in between packing.   I used the lovely orange and yellow colours of autumn for this card - my photography skills (or lack of them) have let me down again - the colours are much richer in real life.



 I began with an inky background with Distress Inks and water then stamped with second and third generation Distress Ink with an IndigoBlu script stamp in the background.  The large images are also IndigoBlu and the fairy, stars, danging leaves and sentiment are Crafters Companion.  Sorry no details - I have to be quick - if you need any  specifics, please ask in a comment and  I will be pleased to get back to you.  They are all stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne.  Loads of  sparkle from Stickles too.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Penny Black and More - Autumn Splendour.
Stamping Sensations - Shades of Autumn.
Allsorts - Trees and/or Leaves.
Craft Stamper - Take It Make It Challenge - Anything Goes.
Country View Challenges - Plant-tastic.

Thank you again for visiting me  - I know I have been completely rubbish  at my visits lately - so sorry!

Have a fabulous week.  Take care.  Christine xxx
