Autumn Colours



Well we've not quiet finished summer yet.....but our challenge at The Crafty Pad this week is

"Autumn Colours"

 chosen by Pauline.

Think of all the lovely autumn colours there is to choose from,  but we want to see at least TWO of them on your creations !!


Our fab Sponsor this week is:

Crafty Individuals

and the fab prize  is


1 Pack of Red Rubber Tree Stamps
1 6x6 Tree Themed Backing Papers
1 A4 sheet of Bird Toppers
Team A's turn this week to give you some inspiration which includes me !!


So I went for a vintage look with this note book holder.



I cut and covered two pieces of cardboard with print paper and then aged with distress inks. On one piece I added a piece of patterned paper and two dollies and again aged with more distress inks. Then cut a smaller piece of orange paper and mounted another piece of pattered paper on top.  Next I printed out The Crafty Pad Designs " Recipe For a Friend" and teapot from the "Teaset". Cut them out and then crumpled them to add creases, distressed them with inks and then covered with several layes of clear UTEE. Added a lovely vintage brad to hang the terapot from and mounted them both onto front.  Had some lovely chocolate silk ribbon in my stash so ruffled a piece along the bottom and added two more vintage brads  and a big bow at the top. Bound the two pieces together with the bind it all and distressed the edges with a blade and then glued a note paper pad to the inside !!
