Papertake Weekly - Autumn Nights


We made it through Monday! Just a few more days and I get all of next week off work! You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to that break! So needless to say, I am ready for Friday to be here NOW! LOL!  With it being Tuesday, it's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly, and this week we're sponsored by the fabulous Katharina from Whiff of Joy! This weeks challenge is Autum Nights, so use autumn color such as oranges, reds, browns, reds, and greens.


I used this adorable Hanglar that  I've had for a while and never inked up (shame on me!). He's colored with Copic Sketch markers and then cut out with circle and scalloped circle Nesties.  I used some of my new Tim Holtz products such as the leaves cutting die and the ticket stamp. PP is from Nitwit Collections. I totally transformed those hearts! They're Melissa Frances glittery chipboard hearts, but I slathered Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paint all over them and then spritzed them with my Copic ABS with R89. Then I took my embossing gun to them for the nice big cracks.


So that's it for me today! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Design Team, and then grab your paper and glue and play along! You might get lucky and win a gorgeous prize from Whiff of Joy!! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
