Harvest Wreath for Papermill Direct Design team member challenge

harvest Wreath for autumn challenge at Papermilldirect

Hi to all out there in blogland! Today I have made something a little different and I am really pleased with how it turned out. You know when you suddenly get an idea in your head and you have to do it there and then? Well this was one of those, its a little different to the picture in my head but that happens to me all the time!

I started off with some white linen paper from Papermill Direct which I inked up with distress inks – Mustard seed, Wild Honey, Barn Door, and Vintage photo. I love the way the linen texture come up when the paper is inked don’t you? I then took my trusty “Autumn Gatherings die from Sizzix and cut me a “heap” of leaves and believe me, you do need quite a few (I cut 4 1/2 strips) Once the leaves were cut I set about inking the edges of them so they would stand out against each other a little bit and then stuck them fairly randomly onto a ring of brown card. The ring measured 6 inches on the outside and 5 inches on the inside, just in case you wish to know šŸ™‚ All that was left was to stick on the scarecrow, words and corn which were all cut on my plotter. The corn was painted with liquid leaf copper.

Here is the result:
