First Friday of the Month

Which means that its another SCD new challenge and a new theme....this month we're trying something different!! lol we are going to be setting colour challenges and you can make anything you like, so tags, inchies, twinchies, arches, layouts, cards....whatever takes your fancy.


This week its Gez's turn to choose and she has chosen:--

Autumn Colours - so, oranges, red, gold, browns....you know the sort of thing..

So, here's my offering...




As usual, the base is the normal white card stock, which was coloured using DI's then stamped with a crackle stamp in brown ink -  black scrolls were stamped in the corners and then the edges "roughed" using scissors and then a swipe of brown ink.   The image was stamped and then coloured in using DI's and hi-lights added with glossy accents before being cut out with a nestie.  prima flower, bling and some pins finish it all off!! 

Do pop on over to the SCD blog and see what the others have created there are some gorgeous pieces there - really hope you'll join us.

Also,

As its the first of the month, boy, October already - its Vanilla Sugar day....and this month its to make/decorate a canvas....here's my piece:-


 
The base was painted black and then using a Tim Holtz mask I used inka gold to add texture to the base.  The image is from Graphics 45 steampunk pad, the cogs are from Tando Creative and have been painted and then brushed with transparent viva decor crocco paint...some watch faces, metal dragonfly and metal corners were added to the piece.  The edges have been trimmed with Tim Holtz tissue tape.  Do pop on over to Vanilla Sugar and see what the others have created.
 
Have a good weekend and TFL xx
