Autumn days


'Trees with Autumn Colours',  is the new theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
The stamps I used for the trees are from a Crafty Individuals set, these were double stamped to blot off the ink, giving a shadow effect. Next came a selection of distress inks, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Crushed Olive. For this stage I dabbed areas with a sponge, until I was reasonably happy with the autuman shades.  I used a  Stormy Sky  ink pad for the sky. 
The fir  tree is a die cut, shades with gilding wax.
I hope you will pop over and see what we all made. Our regular sponsor Flonzcraft  is offering a super prize.
Please remember that we like to see stamping as the main focus to the entries.

Thank you for calling to see what I made, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
