Autumn colours for Frilly and Funklie

Well the latest challenge over at Frilly and Funkie is Autumn colours and I have gone all Wendy Vecchi with this make...and some distressly goodness of course. So here is my autumn coloured make :

I  love the rich tones of autumn and although I am not a regular colourful crafter I had fun making this piece. I used some of the new distress sprays to create these flowers using the tattered floral die. and plenty of spritzing of the new distress stain sprays for the leaves too , mixed with stains for the colours I don't yet have.

The background used distress stains, sprays and Wendy Vecchi's gorgeous texture paste and crackle paste. You can also see the paste on the heart. believe me this crackle paste is gorgeous!!

I added a Wendy Vecchi quote stamped and cut into pieces to fit on my piece.

See the gorgeous squiggly border, stamped in archival ink again a Wendy Vecchi stamp. Look at the sparkle from a little of the metallic distress stain spray.

And the yummy crackle on the heart ....Also the detail of the white texture paste coloured up and added through a Wendy Vecchi stencil.

I am back on the Frilly and Funkie blog on Saturday 25th October with a step x step of how I created this project..full of all the details...
