Mygrafico challenge ~Autumn

Northern hemisphere folk are well into their Autumn (Fall) with leaves changing colours.... and this week at Mygrafico we are celebrating with an Autumn challenge.  The Design team got to use this Autumn Elements Stamp by Dilek Design Studio and you have a chance to win it...by joining us in the challenge.
I decided to use the scarecrow image for my sample...

Autumn

I used a Word document to make my scarecrow scene, using the above stamp and a sentiment from Tiffany Doodles (here) I printed it out and then made a mask.  I stamped Hero Arts Silhouette Grass in distress ink.  I printed the scarecrow  onto some patterned paper and pieced his coat. I coloured the rest with Copic markers.  My card base was stamped with Envelope Pattern in Tea Dye distress ink.  I added my scene panel and then did some hand stitching around the edge.   The seam binding was coloured with the distress ink.

Hop over to Mygrafico and see what my team have come up with using this set, and join us for the challenge.  Entries will be accepted until November 18th, midnight ~ Please review the rules as some rules have changed – rules can be read here.
To be considered, entries must use the Autumn theme.  

Thanks for stopping by.   

Cheers

Dawn
