Autumn Colours

Hello there and a big welcome to my latest followers Colette and Liz.  Did you have a nice weekend? We had a BBQ yesterday, a bit cool but managed to eat outside none the less!  Can you believe we are half way through September today? Where on earth is the year going!!

Anyway to the business at hand and we have a new challenge starting at Lexi's Creations today.  The theme this fortnight is Autumn Colours.  I have gone for rather muted Autumnal Colours on mine but I still think they are Autumnal:

The image is Angel by Tiddlyinks and I have coloured her with my Copics, distressing around the edge with Antique Linen DI .  The papers are Nitwits Crab Apple Lane.  I used the following dies and punches:
Dienamics Pierced Rectangle Stax
Cheery Lynn Mini Pearl Square Doily
Marianne Heart Die
Martha Stewart Punch Heart Border
Woodware Flower Punch
Nellie Snellen Leaf Punch

The ticket is a digi but it is on my other pc so sorry don't know who by, I did the Happy Birthday on it myself.  I also printed out another heart from the digi making it bigger and cut it out for an embellishment.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Cheery Lynn - Things with Wings
Glitter n Sparkle - Use A Punch
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes with a Die

Thank you so much for looking today and your continued support, take care xx
