Autumn Leaves

Autumn has arrived here in London and I have an autumnal card for you with a boy twist 🙂 I’ve used the lovely Whiff Of Joy Oakley With Wooden Sign stamp and cheated a bit because he is actually from the Summer 2009 Kit…but I wont tell anyone if you don’t?

The papers are K&Co Ancestry with a touch of distressing here and there helped with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I’ve also used some fibres which I think I might actually have got from ripping up an old piece of fabric LOL!

I used a mix of Prismacolor, Koh-I-Noor and Derwent pencils to colour him.

Then added a bit of detail to the woodware punch and embossed leaves with my Shimmerz Paints Spiced Cider Blingz and Choc-o-lot. The apple charm is from Quixotic Paperie.

Elaine had the brilliant idea of colouring the charms with Shimmerz paints (Clever!). I’ve also used a bit of Rub and Buff on the charm, which has given it a bit of a rough texture, don’t you think?

But before I go just thought I would mention that the pre-order for the Autumn Belles and Whistles Stamps opens tomorrow at Quixotic Paperie and they are beautiful. So to celebrate, starting today for a limited time only, there is 20% off of the current Belles and Whistles stock!

But not only that, there are the new lines of Prima bits and pieces in store now – pearls, flowers, the new economy line all just gorgeous, you will just want! I know I do! LOL!
