MPTS October Challenge #2 Harvest or Fall

It's that time again over at More Paper Than Shoes blog, for our monthly challenge-this month we have such a treat for you "Two Challenges!!!". A Halloween or Harvest/Fall Challenge!!!

I decided to create for the Harvest/Fall challenge-since I totally love pumpkins and crows!!!! here is my little creations.....enjoy

Theme: Harvest or Fall-"Think Crop Season on the Farm!"


Supplies: Glitter and ribbon

Embellishment: Hand made flower

Technique: Embossing

Surface: Any

I used a chipboard die cut of a crow, traced it onto a chipboard that would hold ink-cut him out and dragged black soot ink over the crow. Using Verza Mark embossing ink applied to the Crow-topped off with black embossing powder and heat set it to give a natural look. I also stamped a snowflake and embossed it to use as a spider web (that's a great way to use your stamp sets you have laying on a shelf-think, outside the box with your stamps)!! Add some glitter and you have a cute little Halloween or fall decoration.

A close up of my little crow and his punkin patch-he is sure celebrating Harvest in style. One of our challenges was to create a hand made flower-this one was a tough one cause I could have made a ton of flowers-but this little cutie needed just the right flower. So here it is a "Lollipop Flower" made from a strip of pattern paper, scored and folded-then glued the ends together to form a circle, popping the folded circle down on top of a scrap piece of paper and adding glossy accents to bond the edges together. whoo looa a very cute flower-add a little black pearl and my punkin patch is complete.

A side view-the little pumpkins are scented home decoration to fill your home of fall spice. I couldn't resist using them in the patch...and the little stem berries I sprayed with Glimmer mist (sunflower, brick and coffee shop) to give it a more rustic feel. Wrapped the stems together and hot glued in place.
