Challenge #Rain  Stamp with fun
Challenge #Autumn Colours  Our Creative Corner     
Challenge #Autumn  Fun Fun challenges
Challenge #Autumn leaves  Pocket ful of Posies   

For this project I used a Whiff of Joy stamp I've had for sometime and never used.  I'm a fairly new crafter and went mad buying lots of stamps and haven't used most of them yet.  This one is called "Willow with umbrella" and coloured her with copics and used a spica pen for the umbrella handle and a gel pen for the spots on the brollie.  I embossed the rain with some silver embossing powder.

The papers are from a paper stack and Crafters Companion.  Oh, I forgot to mention I used a fine liner pen to create the border around the image.
I used a couple of Spellbinders dies for the leaves and a punch for the butterfly and finally I added a couple of gems.

Challenge #Blooming Marvious    Creative Card Crew                 

For this project I decided to use one of the silhoutte kits from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique called "Night nymphs" - I've chosen to use three but there are five different nymphs in the kit.

I had tried cutting these via my cricut machine but it didn't cut as clean as I wanted - I will have to experiment with tracing these images without wings but am not very experienced with my machine yet.

However, I decided to use them by creating a shadow light effect as would be reflected by the moon.  Hopefully that's what I've achieved.  The backing papers were also from the Stitchy Bear ......Boutique called the Beach set as the colour scheme is cream/blue.

I used a Nesties die to cut the frame for the image, a Marianne die for the leaves and a Cuttlebug die for the corner edge.  I also used a paper rounder punch for all the corners.

The embellishments were flowers, pearl spray and flat back pearls.
