Forever Autumn - That's Crafty Challenge

That's Crafty MDF Upright featuring PaperArtsy / Alison Bomber quote and That's Crafty MDF leaves. By Nikki Acton
The new challenge at That's Crafty is Forever Autumn. As always there is a chance to win £20 to spend in the store so do play along! All the details can be found here.

I decided to use one of the That's Crafty Dinky MDF uprights - a crackle background with some of the That's Crafty greyboard leaves. I sponged the leaves with various colours of paint before stamping one of the fabulous new quotes from Alison Bomber / PaperArtsy - The Autumn Edition.

It's one of those busy 24 hours at Addicted to Art! 3 posts in 24 hours. Yesterday I posted my final design for the That's Crafty DT project blog - my Christmas shadow box:

and earlier today my tag for Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey - well two actually!

Thanks for stopping by.
