Welcome to another challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  We are now officially into Autumn so I'm told as of 1st September and I must admit it's my favourite time of the year.  I loved all of these images we were given as inspiration and chose to use the sunflower and the little ladybird as my feature for my card.

I started off by smooshing some Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean and added some Brushed Corduroy.  All the stamps used are by Tracy Evans for Aallandcreate.   I stamped the wellington boots and cut them out and added them to the card with some dimensionals.  I used Tim Holtz Distress inks for the boots.  The Sunflower was also coloured in with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and an aqua brush.  The little ladybird stamp was from my stash.

I'm also adding this into the following challenges:

Sunday Stamps - Autumn 
Die Cut Divas - AG Autumn 
The Paper Players - Fall fun 
Tic Tac Toe - Orange/Rust - Free - Layers 
Not2Shabby - mood board

So pretty, Fiona! Love the rainboots - your coloring is the perfect wash for this lovely card! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

So very pretty. I wondered if you had used a die cut machine to cut any of your pieces/stamped images out as that is a requirement of Die Cut Divas also. Arlene with Die Cut Divas.
