Autumn Leaves...

Hello everyone...

Today, is the start of a brand new challenge over at The Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog and this month's challenge is all about my favourite time of year...AUTUMN!! We can't wait to see all those autumnal creations that you make and we would love it if you would share them with us and join in our challenge. For all challenge details and inspiration from our talented team, just click HERE....

...and here's my piece to inspire you! As always, I really hope you love what I've created!!
As you can see, I've used lots of my favourite Sizzix/Tim Holtz Alterations dies and many Tim Holtz products to create this piece and combined them with The Artistic Stamper stamps.
The Cameo Frame die cut is painted with Distress Paints and I cut an circular aperture in the centre to represent the clock face, which I stamped using one of the stamps from the Tick Tock stamp set. I added some of Tim's Idea-Ology pieces to create the centre of the clock and then moved onto my next element, the Umbrella Man.
This was die cut from chipboard covered in self adhesive metal, using the Umbrella Man die from Sizzix. I then used a Texture Fade to emboss the die cut and applied Alcohol Ink over the top.

Then came the leaves, again die cut using the Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves die and all hand coloured with a blend of Distress Inks. Next, was a quick spritz of Perfect Pearls over the top before I crumpled all the leaves to give them that authentic autumnal look.
Finally, I added a Prima embellishment, a little Corked Vial, added some Distress Glitter into it and a Chit Chat sticker.

So, I really hope you love what I've made and thank you so much for dropping by today to take a look ~ I can't wait to read all your comments!!
See you all again soon...bye for now!
Love Emma xxx
