L'Autunno è arrivato

L'Autunno è arrivato anche qui e ha subito portato molta pioggia (utilissima per la Natura!). Le previsioni meteo ieri erano catastrofiche e c'era l'Allerta Metereologico... Così tutte le scuole oggi sono rimaste chiuse! Però fortunatamente non ci sono stati danni e io sono felice, perchè finalmente ho avuto un po' di tempo per me!!! 😄
Ne ho approfittato per stare nella mia craftroom e ho preparato una coloratissima card autunnale piena di bits and bobs, come piace a me! LOL 😁
Anche se negli ultimi tempi sto apprezzando le card pulite e semplici, amo sempre lasciarmi andare al flusso creativo, usando piccoli avanzi e aggiungendo bits and bobs senza schemi predefiniti... mi dà una bella sensazione di libertà! 😃
La base di questa card è fatta con la fustella Sizzix Scoreboard XL Album Garden Gate.  Ho assemblato le due parti con due eyelet arancioni. Per gli sfondi ho usato uno stencil handmade fatto con cartoncino di recupero e la fustella Mixed Media2 di Tim Holtz e ho giocato con parecchi Distress Inks e Oxides.
La parte più chiara l'ho usata per l'interno della card.
I bellissimi funghi (brand Marianne Design) e le foglie di felce (Creative Expressions) provengono dai miei organizer di fustellate pronte tagliate da avanzi di carta e cartoncino, così come anche il coniglio (Memory Box) e il bordo di foglie in basso.
Ho colorato tutto con i Distress e ho aggiunto Nuvo Drops glitterato sui funghi.
Anche la carta patterned è un avanzo. Sotto il coniglio ho messo un piccolo rimasuglio di juta. Il sentiment è brand Crafter Companion, l'ho timbrato su un avanzo di vellum tagliato con un punch. Ho messo due gocce di colla trasparente per attaccare il vellum, però era visibile lo stesso...😬 così ho pasticciato con il Nuvo Drops glitterato per tentare di coprire la colla, ma non ha funzionato... Sigh...😞😭.
Comunque mi sono divertita moltissimo...!! Ne avevo proprio bisogno!!!  😃

Con questa card vorrei partecipare ai seguenti challenges:

wow stunning, love the stencils, colours, dies and that set of mushrooms are just WOW FACTOR.
The weather has changed dramatically here too, with rain and very cold. Queensland had a tornado go through a town and destroyed so much...one wonders what's happening to our world... big hugs and have a lovely weekend.
Thanks Alice for sharing this most beautiful work of art.xxx

Absolutely gorgeous Alice! You've created such a wonderful scene. Fabulous stencilling and fantastic mushrooms, your ink blending is just brilliant and I love the Nuvo drops on them, a really great idea. Lovely use of your die cuts and the pattered paper and jute are good additions. The mishap with the glue isn't noticeable as I didn't even see it until you mentioned it. I love it when you let your imagination run wild as you always create something different and magical :).
So glad the weather didn't affect you too badly and all are safe. Take care my friend. Debra x

Buon giorno Alice,

Il tempo deve essere stato cattivo per chiudere le tue scuole. Il nostro figlio e compagno più giovane sono ora vicino a Girona, in Spagna, e hanno detto che questa settimana ha avuto forti tempeste e forti piogge.

La tua creazione è bellissima e piena di caldi colori autunnali e quanto sei bravo a creare i tuoi stencil che si sono abbelliti così bene sullo sfondo e penso sempre che i funghi selvatici siano magici.

Sperando che il tuo tempo sia migliore e anche in Spagna, come andiamo la prossima settimana.

Your handmade stencils give a wonderful look when done in 2 tones as you've done here! What a lovely look! The gate design is fantastic too with the little gate post on the side, and you've created a wonderful scene complete with mushrooms and a cute bunny! Way to use those snippets, and I'm glad you found time to craft and enjoy yourself today :)

Alice, so thankful for you & your area that you had no flooding during the recent weather alerts. Seems like there is 'something' all over the world, that causes havoc. At least you had a nice craft day to work on this delightful card. Your bits and bobs always come together in such a pleasing, colorful way. Love the color choices, the wonderful embellies and what a good job you did with your DIY stencil too. (My recent effort didn't turn out nearly so well, so I ended up cutting out with dies - I'd used a maple leaf pattern). Well done on this interesting & well thought out colorful design. You made great use of your unexpected vacation day!! TFS & Hugs

Ellibelle ha detto...

Ooooh, I LOVE this! Fall colours are some of my favourites and I also see pink - another favourite! The bunny is so adorable and I love those toadstools with all the texture! Beautiful stencilled background and gorgeous die-cuts you used!

I am sorry to hear of your bad weather in October but so happy that you had some time for yourself and for crafting on that day! Yes, I agree, although I like to make the clean and simple cards, I also love the details and it does seem more freeing to add little things here and there! Awesome job on this!
