Hello everyone, September has arrived as hard as it is to believe. While I love the beauty of fall (before it gets cold!!) I'm always sad to see Summer come to an end as it makes me realize just how fast time flies!! So here we are, it's a new month and that means it's time for a chance of season at the Four Seasons challenge. Please come join us with all your autumn creations! As always we do have a fabulous mood board but it's optional as our theme is Anything Fall Goes!
I thought it was time to dust off this beautiful stamp kit from Hero Arts as it's been a long time since I've used it. (The kits is no longer available at Hero Arts but I did see a few listed on eBay. It was the September 2018 kit.) The background was done using a script border stamp from Whimsy Stamps (no longer available). And I flicked some diluted distress ink onto the background. I may have overdone it a bit, unfortunately.. I only had used the reddish brown first and should have left it at that but then thougth I'd like some darker splatter too and added Black Soot. That's when I ended up with more splatter than what I wanted. Which unfortunately takes away from my main focal point (script and flower/vase). Oh well... maybe next time I'll be more thoughtful.
The "flannel" was done with a stencil set by Lawn Fawn. It's new to me and I haven't figured out yet how to make better looking flannel so this will do for now. Flower, vase and leaves are all part of the Hero Arts stamp kit including the matching die cuts. Sentiment is a sticker from Tim Holtz's Small Talk booklet.
While I haven't picked a specific image from this month's mood board, my card was definitely inspired by it as I am sure you an tell :)
The challenge runs until September 25th, so there is plenty of time to join in the fun!
