Golden Days…

We’ve been lucky enough to have enjoyed a few beautiful golden days of autumn here in Oxfordshire. This really is my favourite time of the year; I love the crisp mornings and the gorgeous shades of the season. The challenge at Tilda and Friends is to incorporate beautiful golden tones into your ATC. I used one of the new Tilda stamps from Magnolia’s Autumn Collection for my ATC. She is coloured with Promarkers, with crystal glitter on her wings. I made the background by colouring a piece of cardstock with Colorbox Chalk Inks in shades of Yellow Ochre, Bisque, and Amber Clay. Then I stamped an Autumn Leaves scroll stamp randomly, in Brown Roan, on the inked card. I cut out Tilda, and fixed her onto the card with 1mm foam squares. The leaf stamps are from the Magnolia Autumn Club kit, and were also coloured with Promarkers, cut out, and then placed at Tilda’s feet. I added a little glitter glue on them to give an impression of frost. The sentiment was printed on the computer, and I added a golden Papermania flower gem on it for emphasis.

Come and join our challenge; we’d love to see your ATCs!

Thanks for looking and for your comments, which are always appreciated.
