Ooops Its a Door not A Window!

Afternoon lovely Bloggers. I hope your weekend is going great despite this chilly weather. There's definitely a hint of Autumn in the air now isn't there?

I just popped on to post my tag for Frankies TIO challenge this week but after checking her details have realised I remembered it wrong and have done a door rather than a window which is her theme for this week.

Oh well, in for a penny and all that. I'll show you anyway.

I sponged Bundled sage and Brushed Corduroy DI onto the background and then spritzed with perfect pearls. The Crafty Individuals door was stamped in archival black and then I coloured it with watercolour pencils.

The flowery bowers are the lovely Lavinia stamps. I stamped the leaves in pearlescent Brilliance ivy and the flowers in Spiced Marmalade DI and cut them out to make them brighter. Each has a jewel middle.

The toadstools are also from Lavinia, stamped in Brilliance black and coloured with pencils and then cut out. I must have been mad trying to cut out the slivers of grass!!

Well, thanks for stopping by and for those of you lucky enough to be going to Ally Pally this weekend, I hope you had a great time and bought lots of lovely stash.

Chilly, yes indeed it is and this morning there is a distinct change of colour to some of the trees.

Yep I know people who went to Ally Pally this weekend - I'm not jealous (not much anyway!) We had the Exeter craft show..... mmmm.... need I say more, it was rubbish as always I just feel I need to support it in case we end up with no show at all. I don't mind whether its a window or a door its still really nice! Jill x
