Autumn Colours

Autumn Colours/Use Colours of Autumn, is the new Challenge This week at Sugar Creek  Hollow.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making, we would love you to join us this week. Remember we like to see a vintage/shabby chic style to your project/card.

This theme realy had me with my thinking hat on.
Why?  well I am currently away in the caravan and scheduling this post
Staying in a what is usually a beautiful  area in Yorshire. Woodland, rolling hills with remote farms nestling in the folds of the fields.

The weather is currently horrendous, rain, rain and more rain and everything looks dark and dismal , the sky angry, grey and misty.

So what did I have  with me that would suit.
Certainly the leaf stamp from Stampers Anonymous, together with the lace and trimmings box, for finishing off.  The main image is from Stampendous, it is a Christmas stamp, but it so suits the weather we are having.
The colours of the countryside have also changed over the last few days, the fields brown, with the harvest safely gathered in. The leaves now soggy as they lay on the ground, not many remain on the trees.. The colours I used for shading were Vintage photo, weathered wood. lemonade, brick red and dried marigold distress inks.
When I get home I will be making this into a hanging.
Other challenges I will be entering are-
Simon Says Stamp and Show  Leaf-spiration
Moving Along With the Times In the Dark, use dark colours.
Thank you for stopping by, I always appreciate your comments and will be getting back to visiting you regularly  again soon.
