Autumn card with pumpkin


Hello everyone,
this is Monika with the second inspirational project
for our mixed media autumn challenge!
On my card I tried to represent most of the colours of the autumn, but of course the lovely red and burgundy are missing here.
You can find my tutorial on my blog!
Thank you!

Autumnal Fern, #56, Hazel,

The colours of Autumn are so glorious. Teamed with the real fern leaf that I collected and pressed last year, I feel that this portrays the joys of Autumn so well. For more detail, feel free to pop over to my blog.

A world with Octobers

The new theme this month is Mixed Media with Autumnal hues and for my second project I mixed ink, paint and stamped elements to make a journal page. The fabulous quote is from Anne of Green Gables! I hope you'll join in with us this month, there's a prize for the winner if you do!

September Winner, Top Three & DTSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce Miriam's lovely Metal challenge in September.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  So the September winner of our Challenge, Top Three and Design Team Member Special Mention.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!

September winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is...

#33 Gerrina
Congratulations Gerina!  Your badge and prize voucher will be on their way to you very soon.


Now on to Miriam's top 3 and DTSM.
We had 42 entries this month and there were so many interpretations of 'metal'.  After much deliberating, my top 3 are as follows:

No. 14 Plony

I love the shabby chic and vintage feel of this card - it shows the softer side of 'metal' and is perfect for a male themed card.

No. 41 Lula

I love this project because the paper has been distressed perfectly to look like metal.  

No. 12 Ionabuny
Subtle way of adding metal in a beautiful autumnal themed project.

September's DTSM goes to No. 15 Lady Penelope.

Penny has embraced the metal theme and turned a wooden project into a metal dream!  An amazing transformation using different type of 'metal' finishes.
Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride.

And don't forget there is still lots of time to enter our October Challenge - Mixed Media with Autumnal Hues
