Twinchie time

Good afternoon folks,

First off, Welcome to my two latest followers, it's so nice to have you with me on my crafting journey.  I do hope you enjoy reading my ramblings as much as I enjoy writing them.

Yes it's Twinchie time again.  It's Challenge #5 and the subject is .......
                    AUTUMN

It's my favourite season of the year. Summer's over with again (that's if you can call what we had 'summer').  There's a slight chill in the air, along with the chance of the odd frosty morning. The shops are starting to show signs of the summer coming to an end as the autumn/winter fashions appear on the rails - much prefer those to the summer ranges (is that an age thing I wonder?).  Ooh, and what really makes it Autumn for me is, my 'Cinnamon Stick'  and 'Red Apple Wreath' scented Yankee Candles come out of the cupboard.  Now that's Autumn!
I love it when the leaves start to change and fall from the trees, especially when we get some Autumn sunshine too. The colours can be spectacular.   I would love to go to New England in the US and see the fall over there, it's on my 'Places to See' Wish list -   one of these years eh!
I Wish .......

Here's my Autumn Twinchie ......
Sorry, it's not a brilliant picture, the colours are much more vibrant in real life.
I've blended Distress inks for the background, in Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed,  Dried Marigold, a little touch of Peeled Paint and finished off with Rusty Hinge.
The leaf is from an SU  Hostess stamp set - Faith in Nature and it's been stamped in Black Archival ink.  The edges were then sponged with a tiny bit of Flitter Glu and covered with Brighton Pier Flake.  This one is made up of gold shades, bronzes, a bit of silver, orange and a hint of plum, perfect for Autumn.  A couple of gems just  finish it all off.

These little 2x2 pieces of artwork are so much fun to do.  There's already some fabulous inspiration from the DT on the Twinchie Challenge Blog, and some great entries too.  Why not pop over and have a look, you never know, you may just be tempted to give it a go.

Thanks for looking.

Bye for now
Linda
