Sarah Hurley- Autumn Glow

Evening all!
Well that's the school holidays over and my baby has started Primary 1 eeeeeek! Lump in throat moment but also very proud like any mum would be. 

This month we have a brand new challenge over at Sarah Hurley Challenges and our theme has been chosen by the lovely Jess. There has definately been a drop in temperatures these last few days so Autumn is well on it's way which just so happens to coincide with our theme, AUTUMN GLOW.
My project this month was so messy, resulting insome very inky fingers which took a bit of explaining to the other mums when I turned up at the school to collect the children but boy was it fun. 
I'm not that brave when it comes to crafting but recently I have rather enjoyed being the new 'me' and I would highly recommend going out of your comfort zone.

First I started off with a piece of A4 acetate and created a background using Tim Holtz Aclohol Inks ( Sunshine Yellow/Sunshine Orange) and a blending tool.

 Using a Sizzix die I cut out two tags, one from the acetate and another from some smooth white cardstock. I don't have ink that is suitable for stamping onto acetate instead I used my Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad (Vintage Photo) and stamped directly onto the white tag. The flowers,tree and grass are from Sarah Hurley's New Home stamp set. The circles were created using Sarah's Mini Background Stamp collection.....a must have! 

The acetate tag was then adhered to the the white tag using double sided tape which I knew would be hidden later. 

Next I stamped some text and a house image from Sarah's New Home collection (using TH Vintage Photo Distress Ink) onto smooth white cardstock. I also decided to use the super cute mini heart image and stamped it onto the roof of the house. These were then cut out and 3D pads were popped on the back then stuck on front of the acetate. Finally a fibre ribbon was added to give some texture and ta da!!!

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you all again soon
