Another WoJ Autumn peek : 'grateful'

Here's another stamp from the WoJ Autumn kit. This time Willow is all 'country wife' mode with her tea towel and baked bread LOL so I sat her on a wooden chair (Magnolia stamp) and tried to give the card a rustic feel. By fluke main colours are aqua, brown (try to ignore the green haha) so think it qualifies for the Secret Crafter challenge out today and I've got 2 buttons on there so that's ABC's challenge covered :). Sorry about the dodgy photo . . colours are too bright, should be more muted . . just can't take photos in the day - I need my daylight bulb at night!

Was really tempted to put some corny message on it like 'I loaf you' or some other bread related pun but will save that for next time :D

Stash:
  • Stamps: sitting willow, corner flourish/harvest and sentiment all WoJ. the chair is an old Magnolia stamp
  • Colouring: Copics. bit of distress inks sponged around edges and leafy bits stamped . . again . . sorry! can't seem to stop doing that lately
  • Paper: MME Wild Asparagus (tried to make her tea towel match :D)
  • Tools: MS flourish edge punch and Woodware corner rounder punch - has fancy edge to it not sure what proper name is as I've had it a while
  • Others: buttons, rafia ribbon and brown fineliner pen for faux stitching
  • Have a lovely Weekend.
