Autumn Breeze - Joanna Sheen Challenge
Good Morning & Happy Sunday :)
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog and this fortnights theme is 'Autumn Breeze'. The winner will as always receive a brilliant £20 voucher to spend online, so well worth joining in with your seasonal projects ! :)
I used this gorgeous Country Kitchen - Crab Apple stamp set and totally enjoyed doing something completely different for me. I was aiming for a bit of a grungy look and thats my excuse for learning to paint with Distress Inks - lol. I used MME papers, MS butterfly punch, and Spellbinders dies.
Now, I am quite an experienced and enthusiastic die-cutter, but I have to say that that wheat die is the most fiddly, time consuming die I have ever used. It took me a good hour to finally get one piece out without tearing, but I wasnt going to let it beat me. Most fiddly dies get better with use, but this one proper had me pulling my hair out and kicking off !
The embellies were found in my pot pourri bowl, so the card even smells nice too ! :)
Thanks so much for looking at my blog today and have a smashing Sunday
