autumn colours at crafty sentiments




Good morning lovelies - I hope you are well. I'm feeling very much better after a big rest yesterday - and thanks for all of your well wishes - I've not totalled up fully yet but I think I will have raised around £360 for Asthma UK which is brilliant.

Today is  the start of a new challenge over at craftysentiments. Todays challenge is all about autumn colours - here's what I did:



This is using the images Lets-Play-Music and -Kitty-on-wall from crafty sentiments. She's stamped and coloured with promarkers then cut with a spellbinders die. I made frame for this using metallic flakes from indigo blu - I think this was morris dance mix but I might be mis - remembering - sorry. This item is about a year old now - as are most of my flakes.

I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:

AIartisticinspirationschallenges: Frame it
CYPCcraftyourpassionchallenges: Autumn colours
Lexis:lexiscreations autumn colours
Oldie but a goodie:oldiebutagoodiechallenge dies and punches


Thanks for visiting today and hope to see you again soon.

Hugs

Rachel x

  11. Sorry I missed yesterday post Rachel, but just had a read and well done you on finishing and in a decent time and what a lot you raised, you deserved a well earned rest yesterday. Only one of mine ran in the end as the other had a lurking ankle problem and so competitive is he that if it looks like it will slow his time he's out. But the other who is still in running under Asics finished in the Top 30 so well proud of him.

    Sweet image on your card here and super colouring.
