Paradise of Stamps - Autumn

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Yesterday I had an amazing day at the NEC, there didn't seem to be as many people there this year, there were pockets where it was busy, but not like it used to be.I had a fabulous day and bought loads of new goodies, in particular some WOW glitter embossing powders, which I have been looking forward to having a play with.

This morning,  I am posting a reminder card for the current challenge at Paradise of Stamps which is 'Autumn'.

I couldn't resist colouring this Whimsy stamp called Dolly. I coloured her with a mixture of DI reinkers and DI markers, the colours I used are listed below the picture.

Peeping out of the top is a Marianne die Anja's Corner, the bingo stamp is by Joy from Noor Design U.K. The papers are from an LOTV pad. Tucked underneath the flowers on the right is a Memory Box die, Loopy Loops. The ribbon, flowers and lace are all from my stash.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Coat: Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick
Dress: Grand Espresso, Walnut Stain, Old Paper
Shoes: Gathered Twigs
Flower Pot: Frayed Burlap, Wild Honey
Flowers: Spiced Marmalade, Gathered Twigs, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters
Socks: Old Paper

The winner of the challenge will be invited to join the DT as a Guest Designer.

Thank you all for popping in.

I will be back this afternoon.

Take Care.

  4. Beautiful Autumnal colours, I love the warm tones of this time of year. Dolly is coloured beautifully and your matching embellishments and die cuts add the perfect finishing touches. Glad you had a good time at the NEC, it was definitely quieter than other years though, which I prefer as I like it when you can get around the stands without being pushed and squished. Enjoy playing with your embossing powder.

  5. Beautiful Colour Combo and coloured to perfection as always. Your embellishments just amaze me. Hope your having a Great Weekend!

  6. Beautiful colouring Gina, the image is a real sweetie, gorgeous flowers and i love the pearls, fabulous!
    Glad you had a good time at the NEC.
