Autumn has arrived here today! We have some light rain, very windy and much much cooler... so today's share is fitting I think!
It's EONS since I managed to take part in the challenges at 'Less Is More' but I finally found some inspiration in the little grey cells to produce something that combines with their colour theme for this week of Dark Green and Rust.
I have been practicing using an acrylic block inked and spritzed with water - am still not very proficient but this piece used as the background was one that didn't end up in the bin! I either manage to press too hard, put too much water on or generally just make a splodgy mess! This effort I think is 'passable'! The ink is Shabby Shutters.
The Chloe stem die from Memory Box I have had for some time and this is the only second time I've used it... I inked some card with Rusty Hinge and then cut out two flower heads.
The tops of the heads I painted on some Dark Bronze Mica powder mixed with modelling paste. I do not use the mica powders enough - they very rarely get an outing as I hate using them up!
Randomly placed some bronze pearls on some of the tops and left the others - which are quite shiny IRL and the little bit of texture gives a some depth.
Just layered it onto some textured card and stamped on the sentiment.
Clear it Out - Thanks (and am using my powders reluctantly!)

Thanks for taking the time to look - am off now to finish a commissioned new baby card - but will have coffee and a trawl through blogland first! x
