Yay! Autumn, one of my favourite seasons, love the colours - 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness' says it all really. Been busy stocking up the jam cupboard with all the lovely fruits of the season, I always look forward to stocking up the cupboards ready for winter.
So we're into October now, well done to the winner of last month's Lavinia Stamps challenge and well done to everyone else too who entered the challenge, fantastic art work such a joy and inspiration to see!
This month's theme is Autumn Colours so I'm looking forward to seeing some rich and sumptuous colours..........or maybe some misty mornings? Don't forget you can enter by email if you don't have your own blog - couldn't be simpler just use the contact form on the website and away you go. With £40 of Lavinia vouchers as the prize each month what have you got to lose.......AND there are some stunning new stamps out now on the Lavinia website !
This one is made using the new Spotty Toadstool and a couple of older stamps - the Autumn Leaf set and Fairy Web. The leaves were stamped with Brushos and then a crackle glaze applied. The toadstool has a clear varnish on top and the web some tiny gems to look like dewdrops.
This one is made using Distress Inks and 2 fab new stamps - Lillies and Floral Spray both coloured with Wink of Stella in gold.
So come on and have a go and if you're looking for more inspiration then take a wander around the rest of the team's blogs - some fantastic designs to lift your spirits on a misty morn !
