Autumn Wreath

 Lot's of fun with Autumn colours, water colouring, dies, stamps
and an embossing folder.....

Meet today's card......

I Started with die cutting the Hanging Florals from Pink Fresh
in gold metallic, dry embossed the centre and layered up from there
I used the wonderful Lindy Magical powders, activated with water
and cuts lots of leaves and a few acorns .....
I used several different die cuts including, Sizzix, Poppystamps
and a pretty Pink Fresh stamp and die set.
I also stamped and heat embossed in gold the flower wreath.
Finishing off with a tiny sentiment and gloss over those acorns ....

Thanks for finding time to stop by, I really appreciate it.

Birthday Boy

Today's card was inspired by the colour challenge over at Color Throwdown.
Although the photo inspiration had flowers on it I thought the colours
would lend themselves to a masculine 16th Birthday card.......
The colours are RED, PURPLE and ORANGE......

You can see a little more of the detailing, crackle and bling on this photo.

I used a mix of gold and purple embossing powders,
which played nicely together on the die cut photo film frame,
the stamping/embossing on the left and the die cut number 1.

I so enjoyed making the mixed media card, using stencilling, stamping, die cutting
and heat embossing and loved the colour combination from the challenge.
