Autumn Colours

Good morning and happy Choosday everyone. Yes it's

So over at the Digi Choosday blog today the challenge for you is of course Anything Goes, but for the DT we were asked to use Autumn colours and here is my make.

I love the colours that you see in leaves at this time of year, all the different shades of oranges, reds and purples so thought I would use that as my inspiration.

I've used the two butterfly stamps from the Absolute Vintage Stamp set. I've stamped a background with them and then stamped some individually and fussy cut them out. I then used 3 distress inks, Abandoned Coral, Pickled Raspberry and Seedless Preserve to create a graduated background and the same inks on the butterflies. I added some faux stitching around the background and created a topper using some dies and then inked and added faux stitching to that. I made a double bow and wrapped it around the background before gluing into place. I then shaped and glued on the butterflies, adding one on top of the bow.
You could use butterflies from any of the fab Polkadoodles collections to create this. And after I finished it I thought of an easier way to do it. You could fill an A5 or even an A4 sheet of card with either digi or stamped butterflies then go over the whole page with your inks, then choose the bit you want for your background and then fussy cut out the rest of the butterflies. It would be a lot easier than trying to ink individual butterflies.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
