The Shabby Tearoom - Challenge #189 - 'Fall Florals'

I am joining in with this weeks Shabby Tearoom Challenge. I do enjoy the freedom to layer lots of lovely elements. The design team have such varied styles this week. Lots of wonderful inspiration.

I like the shaped windows in the small, birdhouse/rotunda?? so have die cut a similar shape. I have also used the fence in behind. I loved the image colours but in the end I decided to leave out the green. I die cut oak leaves, coloured floral wire and wound it, pulled some strands of hessian cloth, and made a bright orange flower to go with the two ready mades. The butterfly is cut from designer paper, coloured, then covered in glossy accents. The banners are from a single ended die. I turned the cut pieces in the die to cut the other end to the same shape.

 Stamps: Hero Arts Sentiment
 Dies: Lawn Fawn Stitched leaves, MFT Fish tail flags Stax, Spellbinders Label 21, Martha Stewart fence punch, daisy punch (orange flower)
Ink: Versafine black, Memento (to colour the flower)
Paper: MME, PTI Rustic White, The Butterfly is from Kaisercraft -Timeless collection here.

Thanks for dropping in.
