Challenge for Magenta - Autumn !

YES yes, a new Magenta challenge - autumn? 
It's still summery here, but autumn will soon be taking over, I think. 

 I used this very versatile stamp (own design!) to create a card and an ATC. 

The card above is a mix of acrylic paints amd heat embossing, and of course: stamping.
The ATC is stamping with (mixed) distress inks from the craftsheet.
 That's always a winner as it blends the colors so nicely together (and you can make multiple prints as long the inks don't turn muddy). 
To achieve this worn effect don't make the inks on the craft sheet too wet
... that gives the worn effect
... WORN you said? 
YES, that's what autumn is about, worn, but beautiful. 
I LOVE seedheads because of that! 


Create a Card, a Layout, an Art Journal page, or even an altered object; whichever you feel like, and follow the theme. Use some Magenta products such as: papers, stamps, embellishments, Peel Off's, chipboard, stencils, etc.

Be sure to link back to the Magenta challenge here.
The winner will be drawn randomly from the participant's linked up entries.
Challenge projects that catch Magenta's eye will be featured in the winner post.
It's fun...

Remind me of the warm summer days...

I really LOVE warm summer days. So when the colder days come : remind me of the warm summer days... These are the colors to go with it as far as I am concerned. 
This stencil is an all-timer... also so versatile!!!
 I am busy with a wall-hanger with this stencil also, but you will have to do with this card today ! :) 

I used structure paste and distress inks to create it.
