Autumn Colours Challenge

Evening everyone. Thought I’d better do a a quick post tonight as its been a while. I’ve been up to Olympia today with my sister to the ‘Spirit of Christmas Show’. We had a lovely day apart from the tube strikes – it was a nightmare trying to get there from Victoria. Our feet were crying by the time we got home tonight!

Have taken the first of my Malaria tablets tonight in readiness for my holiday next week. Just keeping my fingers crossed I don’t get any of the mammoth list of possible side effects on the enclosed sheet. Its horrendous reading!!

Anyway my card tonight is for the Scrapbook Sisters latest challenge ‘Autumn Colours’. Have a go if you haven’t already cards 173I cut a circular card  and arranged the leaves around the circle. The leaves were stamped and coloured with distress ink pads in varying shades of green and orange. I then applied PVA glue to areas of the leaves and covered the glue with detailed gold embossing powder and gave them a blast with the heat gun. I usually use a glue stick but mine was nowhere to be found.
