Falling Leaves

Stamp with Fun

Sorry I am late posting this, we have company staying so can only get up here in short bursts. This is my DT card for Stamp with Fun and also Whiff of Joy, another of Elizabeth Bells fabulous Fall Collection for 2009 (there is some great Whiff of Joy News at the bottom of this post).

I have coloured this beautiful Willow image with Distress Inks (Dried Marigold, Shabby Shutters, Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap). The Papers are from Bloom and Grow Download available from Sweet Shoppe Designs. On my daily visit to the fantastic Rach's blog I find her fabulous tutorial on making flowers so just had to have a go, this is my first try so hope to get better, it is a fantastic tutorial and I really enjoyed making this rose.

On the subject of Flower Tutorial Just Magnolias Tutorial for this month features Handmade flowers and was created by the talented Michelle from Mt Little Space on the WWW, I am dying to try these flowers and will be off to but my Sizzix dies as soon as I have finished this post. Don't forget to check out the Just Magnolias Tutorial and hopefully join us in the challenge this month.

I have used 2 more of the Whiff of Joy Fall Collection stamps on the inside.

The following information was taken from Katharina's Blog
