A witchy brew

Hello again it's Jane here with some more inspiration for our current autumn colours and/or Halloween challenge. My first make was traditional autumn colours so I thought I would go with the Halloween mix today, especially as it is the 13th!

I also wanted to play with the awesome new distress mica stains..any excuse! To see how my witch came to life just jump on your broomstick and pop on over to my blog here where all is revealed. 

Have a great Halloween at the end of the month,

August & September Winners, DTSM & Top 3s

  Hello everybody! Here are our August & September Winners.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!

The August winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is

Congratulations, you voucher code & badge will be emailed to you very soon

Hello everyone, Debs here with my top 3 and DTSM, which all show monochromatic in all its glory, and follow the simple rule of using only 1 colour.


Alice - entry number 39 - a fabulous take on the theme, which shows real skill  in the stamping of the lighter background and going darker for the foreground. Great use of composition too. 


Chrissy - entry number 17 - I love the simplicity of this card, which is hard to achieve , well it is for me lol. A really lovely card!


Ionabunny - entry 19 - a truly monochromatic card with luscious hues of blue. I love the combination of the embossing folder 

with the stamping both in the background and as a focal point. 

Lastly the Design Team special mention 

Mac - entry number 43- this really caught my eye. I can see lots of skills and techniques went into the making of this card 

which, is clean and simple in design, but not simple to achieve. Starting with the fabulous composition, it is beautifully stamped and I love all the shimmer on the leaves 

and flower, really loved it, as I’m sure did the recipient. 

Well done to all who entered and a special thank you to my top three and Design Team special mention.

Congratulations, your voucher code & badge will be emailed to you very soon

We had lots of beautiful entries for the September challenge I hosted. I really did enjoy seeing all your leaf themed projects. As always to choose a Top 3 and a special mention is tough but after a lot of deliberation, here they are in order of their entry. 

Number 14 Emma

The unusual oxides Emma chose to stencil and to colour her leaves with made for such a delightful card.

Number 61 Mac Mabel

I am a sucker for wreath type projects and the one Mac Mabel  made using her wonderful leaves is so beautiful, topped off by some gorgeous acorns too.

Number 74 Sid

I do love all things Tim Holtz and Sid created a beautiful tag using Tim's leaf dies. He added them to a  water coloured  background, so lovely. 

and last but by no means least is my Design team special mention. This goes to
 Number 83 Jane

Jane used lots of leaves and ephemera to create a gorgeous  junk journal. Do check it out. Jane is a brand new blogger, which these days is a rare delight so give her some newbie love too. 

Thanks everyone for sharing all your lovely makes and entering the challenge. Enjoy the autumn and keep crafting.
