Autumn...LOVE it...


Autumn is definitely my very favourite season. Gone are the hot and humid, strength-sapping days of summertime, replaced by easy walking and sleeping weather. My gardening chores are done for another year, and I can begin to "nest" again for the winter months ahead. Pure and simple bliss!

The Created by Hand Challenge today is to incorporate dragonflies into your work, and the Arty Girlz challenge is to use autumn colours. All stamps used are from Quietfire Design, on a watercolour-paper base which was spray-painted with Ecoline Inks (also available at Quietfire!) from a Ranger mini mister. I stamped the dragonflies on a transparency, one with Brilliance Copper Ink, and one with Top Boss gold embossing powder over Top Boss embossing ink, cut them out, and pop-dotted them onto the base. I used Swarovski flat back iridescent crystals for their little heads, and Swarovski 4 mm bicone crystals on jewelry wire for their antennae.

Thanks for visiting today!
