SCD autumn colours

This months scd challenges are based on anything you want to do, a layout, card. ATC whatever grabs you. So after seeing that this weeks theme is Autumn colours i had couple of things in mind. First is a chipboard frame cut from a piece of chipboard using a sizzix die - frame. The background has been run through a wood grain embossing folder by papertrey ink and brushed over with Distress Ink. The leaves were from Tim's new leaves die plus an old small sizzix one i had. The leaves were stitched using the sewing machine and the sentiment was one form some October afternoon stickers.
The pins used are T/H and the small owl and branch are from a paperartsy stamp set. The old cotton real has been primed and painted with tim holtz crackle paint.

The tag was done in a similar way, run through an embossing folder and distress ink used. The owl is a bit of a cheat. At ally pally i bought some chipboard pieces from lbcrafts, one being an owl so i used it as a template and used up my scrappy bits of paper. All the papers used for these projects are from crate papers restoration line. Its been a really busy weekend here and so this has been posted a little late. Our son was taken into hospital and this is the first chance i have had posting it. I made the projects on Saturday when all was well, but Saturday night thing got bad and he got worse. So he was admitted, but were home now and he is feeling better but we need to keep a close eye on him.
