Good morning & welcome to Fall ! Here in Ontario we are enjoying cooler temperatures without the humidity of the summer, it's wonderful. It rained overnight so it's cool & wet this morning and a perfect time to drink Tea and catch up on blogging.
The challenge theme this week at Impression Obsession is "Inspired by Nature". I was gardening all afternoon yesterday and was certainly inspired by all the nature around me. I love this time of year when the leaves are turning and the Mums are blooming. Last night I created this card to enter into this challenge.
I used the Damask Floral image which is another one of my favourites by Leigh Hannan, I'll also link into Judith's Forgotten Friday post as these stamps haven't seen ink for approx two years. Too many stamps, not enough time !
Impression Obsession Stamps used: Damask Floral J2011 (rubber stamp) & Damask Floral CL109 Clear set (in which the same image is slightly larger and separated which are great for using as accents).
I embossed the J2011 Damask Floral and a couple of the leaf images from the CL109 Damask Floral set with dark brown. I coloured all the images with Tombows and blended Salty Ocean & Evergreen Bough Distress Inks around the image. I attached the leafy arrangement & the flower charm into the bottom/centre as shown. I also added some holograph glitter and tiny rhinestones. The flower charm came from charm necklaces that I took apart to use for embellishments.
Below is a photo of Purple Coneflowers that were blooming in July & August in our garden and are a great inspiration for creating.
Well that's all for this morning !
Thanks for your visit and enjoy your day,
