Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog- Autumn/Fall

Double Good Morning!! We are starting a new month- can you believe it's October!! Halloween is just around the corner... Thanksgiving to follow and then, Christmas!! Oh... and the cold weather I am not looking forward to!

Before I move to fast... let's enjoy the current season! This month's Serendipity Stamps Challenge is a Autumn/Fall theme. As most of you know by now, Mary (owner) gives the DT an "extra" little challenge and this month was to use glue on our projects. Here's a link to the mixed media challenge using glue at SCS.

NOW... before you see my card, just know that this girl checked out the challenge and put every little brain cell to work....

I have to say, I used glue.... regular glue... and it never dried (we're talking over two weeks later never dried). I think I should have used a "hot" glue. Applied the glue in a random fashion.... sprayed with Heidi Swapp mists in Amethyst and Gold. When that didn't dry exactly right... I swiped SU Blackberry Bliss ink across the panel. When that didn't dry... I got rid of the excess by tamping down on my scrap paper.... still didn't dry totally.

Last thing for the learning books... when you use artificial light- this much gold is very hard to photograph!! It was totally fun to try something new but, I'm thinking I need a little more practice.

NOW... those fabulous leaves were die cut using Serendipity's Leaf Pop Dies- GORGEOUS!! And the sentiment is from Serendipity's Spring-Summer- Winter- Autumn set.

AND... we are welcoming the lovely Julia Stainton as our Guest Designer for October -Thrilled to have you joining us!!

I think your technique in the end came out beautifully! Love the two colors, so rich! I ended up having glue splats everywhere-took the easy way out!

Marisa said...

That BG is gorgeous, even if it did not cooperate in the process LOL!

Your bg looks fabulous, Vickie! Love all the color. Did it ever dry? What kind/brand did you use? It looks beautiful on top of the gold bg.
