A new challenge at Noor Design.

Good morning blogger friends.
I am here today to let you know about the new challenge at Noor Design UK.
The theme this month is Halloween/Autumn
I went for the Autumn theme and I have to say I had so much fun making this project and I absolutely love the results.

This is my first mixed media project which has taught me a few things along the way.
I used the Dutch Doobadoo leaf stencil with structure paste on all the three leaves but as you will notice the bottom two are glittery. I used Marion Smiths colour lab on all my leaves but the mistake I made with the bottom two was to not cover my leaves with Gesso first. This meant that the ink soaked into the MDF and the colour did not take as well. To rectify this, I covered the leaf with stickles to act as a barrier between the wood and the colour. This worked a treat and I have to say I love the effect. Reminds me of dew on leaves.
The top leaf was created after using Gesso as the base.

The flowers and ribbons have all been coloured with the colour lab inks and I think this is going to be so addictive. You can create up to 30 different colours with the kit.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Deep Ocean challenge - Autumn
Simply Create Too - Autumn Splendour
Papertake Weekly - Take your pick (colour theme)
Shopping our Stash - wooden it be nice (MDF leaves)
Try it on Tuesday - Autumn
If any of the items at Noor Design are out of stock, they can still be ordered and Tracy will post them as soon as they are back in stock.

Thank you all for stopping by today and for your lovely and appreciated comments.
Hugs Sharon. x

Good morning Sharon - still playing catch up with all my lovely crafty friends since the wedding last week and having my little visitor to stay whilst Mum & Dad are on Honeymoon.
You have some gorgeous makes since my last visit and this is no exception.
Stunning design and so many gorgeous techniques.
Looks like a miserable day weather wise so that's a good reason to stay inside and catch up and then a little playtime in my little crafty haven - I have missed it so much lol!!!
Have a fabulous day.
Debs xx
