Bright Colours at Lavinia Stamps

Good morning folks, well actually its not a good morning as I'd booked today off work and now I have to go in aaaarrrrrgghhhh! As you can imagine I'm not a happy bunny but hey ho, it'll soon be weekend. Today's card is my entry for the challenge at Lavinia Stamps which is to use Bright Colours. 

I used some silk coated card to make this, goodness knows what sort of card it was because I made it a few days ago and when I came to take the pic, the background colours had all faded which is a bit strange but on the plus side, the fairy does pop  a bit more now lol.

I used distress inks (Wild honey, spiced Marigold and fired brick)and torn paper masks to create the masks and then stamps in the different trees and foliage in Memento Inks (Rich cocoa, bamboo leaves, tangelo, rhubarb stalk) I stamped the fairy with timber brown stazon and matted the finished scene on dark brown and then on kraft card.

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:
Craftitude: anything goes/falling leaves
Flutter by Wednesday: open challenge
Ladybug Crafts: autumn colours
My Sheri Crafts: Fall/Thanksgiving
So Artful: trees

Well I'm off to venture out and catch the bus to work, have a good day and thanks for popping by today
