Red and Orange

Hope you've been having a great weekend. What glorious weather it's been considering the time of year. Lovely for taking a walk and seeing all the beautiful colours nature gives us in autumn - stunning.

I've used some of those stunning colours for my card today; red and orange which also work for the two challenges I'm entering it into: bonfire/firework colours.

Here's what I used:

Shaped card cut out on my Silhouette
Lavinia leaves, Fairy and Toadstool stamps
Stamping Up Pocket Silhouettes
Versafine Onyx black inkpad
Fired Brick and Wild Honey Distress Inks
Tim Holtz blender applicator and sponges
Fine glitter
Liquid pearls

This was a lovely messy one to do. Inky fingers all over the place, great fun.

Here's the challenges I'm entering:

That's it from me. I'm off to play with some of my NEC goodies this afternoon. 

Bye for now.
