Room with a View....

I recently changed my craft room around and my desk now sits at the window which looks over the garden...I placed the bird table nearby so I can see all the feathered visitors...which seem to be only Starlings at the moment and dont they eat!!! I have to refill the feeders everyday...we do have a little Robin thats comes everyday too....he is the same one that nested in a flowerpot behind our shed in the spring...anyway I'm not here with a nature talk...lol...I'm here to show you this...

I was inspired by the colours in my garden and as luck would have it this weeks challenge over at Allsorts is Autumn Leaves and Trees
I blended some distress inks on white card...sprayed with water and then shimmer mist..then stamped this fab funky tree by Katzelkraft in Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossed with clear powder.  I finished with a few gold pearls and a simple satin ribbon.
Thank you for coming by
Have a lovely Tuesday

  4. The rich colours of the distress inks and glimmer mist have created a perfect background for the stamping Jan.

    I have bought and used the Holly Basket stamp and just uploaded it to my blog today, I just wanted to thank you for the inspiration, I think my Christmas cards this year will be using this stamp I love it. Thanks, hugs Teresa xx

  7. So beautiful -- the background is just gorgeous, and then the stamp and simple accents you chose for the rest of the card show it off wonderfully.

    I love that tree, I'm going to see if I can find one...

  8. Oh my Jan, you have been creating little works of art recently haven't you?!! Impressive stuff - wish I could make cards like this! x
