Dilly Beans Fall Challenge
This week at Dilly Beans, we're still celebrating the Fall season. I love the changing leaves and the way the crisp breeze makes them dance through the air. I've used an older image, #154 Hanging Heart Girl and removed her heart. I love the way it looks like her hair is blowing in the wind.
She's colored with Copics and Spica Pens and I added a shaped computer generated sentiment. The background is embossed with the Tim Holtz Swirls folder and the dancing leaves are metallic brads. A leaf border was punched in copper foil card stock with an EK Success punch.
Be sure to check out the fabulous work from my teamies at the Challenge Blog and just wait 'til you see the fab new stamps Megan has added to the STORE. Besides a whole slew of new Halloween stamps, Megan has some adorable new turtles.
Aren't they the cutest EVER? I apologize in advance for a lean week this week. I'm currently in Chicago area for my 40th high school reunion and didn't get much crafting time in before and won't be around much this weekend. See you next week.
I'm so happy you came to visit and share in my crafting adventures. I hope in doing so you are inspired. I would love to hear your comments and I'm happy to share my designs for your personal use, but please do not submit them for contests or publication or copy them for any commercial venture.
I've always loved crafting, even as a little girl. My inspiration was my Daddy who was a wonderful artist and made beautiful 3-D Valentines for my teachers in grade school. Although I love all kinds of crafts I haven't had a real focus since abandoning counted cross stitch back in the 80's. Until I got my Cricut in 2008, that is. I've since expanded my horizons and found a new love in coloring both rubber and digi stamps with my Copics. Now I'm a blissfully retired card maker and papercrafter married 42 (!) years to a wonderful guy with two furbabies, Goliath and Jezebel. Everyday I look forward to dreaming up designs and playing in my craft room. I invite you to share in my adventures.
