Firstly I'd like to say a big HELLO and THANK YOU to all my new followers - I hope you enjoy looking at my work and I hope that some of it might inspire you.

The theme for the October ATC swap at the UK Stampers is textures.

I used ribbed Kraft card for the base and then embossed some Core'dinations Kraft-Core card. I sanded the raised area to show the core and went over it lightly with some rusty hinge Distress ink. I wrapped some thin string round it and tied a leaf charm to it before adhering it to the base card. I stamped the images onto white card, tore them out and coloured them with peacock feathers, vintage photo and rusty hinge Distress ink and adhered them to the ATC.
I used the Stampers Anonymous Mini Blueprint stamps.

I'm entering my ATCs in the following challenges.
The Artistic Stamper The Natural World Challenge.
Challenge Up Your Life Autumn/Halloween Challenge.
Sweet Stampin' Autumn Trees/Leaves Challenge.
