Many Thanks

Morning all.
The really weird weather continues here. After an absolutely awful Saturday, Sunday was gorgeous and sunny just as yesterday. The weatherman says that it is getting warmer so no rush to get the last of the tomatoes in just yet!
Over at Cardz4Guyz we have a brand new challenge for you. This week we would like you to focus on the theme of 


That's a pretty broad theme and reflects many of the challenges going on in blogland at the moment.
Here is my interpretation.

This started life as a OLC but just as I was about to put the sentiment on, it fell off the block onto the top of the card!!!! Never mind a bit of judicious trimming and all was not lost!
The stamp was from a bargain bucket at Port Sunny, Crafty Individuals 5 for £3, I do love a bargain.
I stamped and embossed it in black then added some crystals of Dark Brown Brusho and spritzed it with water and let the magic happen. On my way home on Saturday, from Port Sunlight stamp fair, I drove past trees that were definitely turning, mainly horse chestnuts but at least the colour is upon us at last. Using some green left over in the palette from a previous session, I washed in some green under the trees and left it at that. The sentiment was also from a bargain from PS, this time Inkadinkado.
The stitched borders were from MFT. They just give an impression rather than cut.
Please check out the rest of the team and join us this week,we'd love to see your projects.

  1. What a great way to use your bargain stamps Jules, and I love that Brusho technique! We are bathed in sunshine here too but there is a definite nip in the air.

  2. Hehehe - a good crafter always knows how to fix a boo boo! Talk about drama! This card has it in spades with those billowing fall colors. Gorgeous design (totally pinning it!)

  3. WOW! It all together looks amazing. Brushos adds so much expression in this card

  4. What a fabulous sky Julie!
    Brilliant card!

  5. This is so beautiful Jules!! Love the brushos trees. This card would work perfectly for the new CAS Watercolour card challenge. Hope you'll join us. :) xx

  6. I love the feeling of movement that the Brushos give these trees, Jules! It looks like the wind is blowing! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!

  7. Ah the magic! As for the stamp falling... been there, done that. Often ;)

  8. Such great colours Julie. The leaves are just on the turn now and falling off the fruit trees. The maize has been cut all around here so more places to explore with my hairy kids!!

  9. Wow! I really like the wonderful watercolouring on the trees - really does give a super autumnal feel. Thanks so much for playing along with The Male Room this week! Deborah, DT.

    So glad you were able to rescue the card!

  10. I just love this! It's amazing the colours that explode from just one Brusho powder. Beautiful card. You got quite the bargain with that stamp, it's gorgeous. Ger x
