Get Funky! Challenge ~ Autumn Woodland

Hi.. These are rubbish photos, but my excuse is they were taken after dark, and it will be my only chance to get them done in time to enter the November challenge over at Get Funky!

This month's challenge theme.. Autumn Woodland.. was set by my very talented former Funky Hand teamie, Enfys.

You wouldn't know it, but the Funky Hand element on this card is the paper. I used a beautiful, very subtle paper from the 'Occasions' section on the 'V. Funky' CD-rom. I would describe it as yellow with a very subtle shading in it. It's gorgeous, but I had to spoil it with some distressing with Dark Brown Chalk Eyes around the edges! Does it still count? I hope so!

I've also used dark brown Bazzill CS, with some gold mirri card and my favourite white cardstock from The card is finished with an Inkadinkado flourish stamp and some maple leaf brads in gold, copper and dark brown.

  12. Lovely card Chris. I don't think you have spoiled the paper I think it softens the paper when you chalk or distress ink around the edges, especially as the centre is very sharp with the gold matting, it makes a good contrast, well done!

  13. Lovely card. That scroll stamp is fab and the little leaves are perfect

  14. Very nice Chris, glad tosee that Inkadinkadoo stamp making an appearance again, one of my favs.

    Hope you realise how lucky we are having it, they have not been able to het restocks since they first hit the UK.

    Sounds like I might see you Saturday, hope so that will be great. Still can't do a lot on the computer due to the glare and limiting my craft time and saving it all up for then.
