Sunday Stampers #328 Autumn Leaves

o
I love Hel's theme this week over at The Sunday Stamper's "Autumn Leaves" there a hundreds of them in my garden, the price you pay for living alongside woods!Not that I'm complaining, the colour changes are fabulous, rusts, reds and golds, beautiful.
I decided to give my mirror a little makeover, well it was hugely expensive, from the big blue shop, have to get my monies worth lol. And thought I'd incorporate Hel's theme, with leaves and of course flowers.
This sheet of butterflies is one of the gorgeous Rustic Harmony papers, that I just couldn't  bring myself to chop up, so having such a big area to cover was far less painful, as there are lot's still showing :) and I have some left!!!!
All the flowers are Rustic Harmony papers cut out with the Mini Tattered Florals die along with leaves and twigs cut out with the Autumn Gathering die, love both of those. The edges are inked in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, to hive then a little more vintage feel, and pearls added to the centres of the flowers.
The stamps that match the paper collection are gorgeous and stamp out perfectly every time. Took a chance and added the "Laughter and Love" after I'd glued down the paper lol, would have cried if it all went wrong!
The butterflies and the "Live, Laugh, Love" sentiment were stamped onto cream cardstock and aged with Brushed Corduroy ink to blend in.
So there you have it, my new mirror frame, and I even managed to keep myself out of shot lol.
Happy Crafting Elizabeth xx

I'm also going to enter this into the Craft My Life Challenge Oct/Nov
