Autumn Tilda

Good morning all hope you are well.
I was in the mood for a good play last night,
so out came all my embossing powders,
distress inks, dies and a list of
challenges to enter.
Ooh what fun i had getting messy,
Fortunately i had this Tilda image already
coloured with distress inks on water colour paper,
 she was already done in the colours i wanted to use.

Over at the Shabby Tea room they have a 
photo inspiration challenge with some 
lovely autumnal colours.
Rooting through the Raspberry Road paper set i have 
i came across this one out of the 
Josephine set that was perfect. The stripe paper is 
from the same set, i printed  it on both sides of the 
paper to make it double sided for the flower.

The flower is made from a Doo Hickey die from Magnolia,
The challenge over at TOMIC this week is to use
a Doo Hickey die.
I then had a play with gold twinkle embossing powder
on the edges of the flower to give it a distressed look.
Just Magnolia challenge theme this time is

The image is cut with a Go Kreate die and i 
have inked the edges with
Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo distress ink,
i then again just touched the edges with gold embossing powder. I stamped a swirl stamp around the edge of the image with vintage photo ink.
I then put this on top of a Weathered clock die
from Tim Holtz that i gold embossed.

The digi sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly,
cut with a nesti circle and inked 
with the same distress inks.
The leaves are both Martha Stewart punches.
I used brown parcel paper and vintage photo
distress in to colour, then while the ink was still
wet i sprinkled iridescent gold embossing powder
that i made up with clear embossing powder 
and some gold mica powder on to give it a 
metallic look.

I am also going to enter this into 
they have the theme 
Colours of Autumn.

Thanks for stopping by today
Take care
