Autumn colours and Halloween for Country View Challenges

Happy October all, wow isn't the year motoring along now. I have 2 design team blog posts coming up today. This is my first one for Country View Challenges where  the theme for the month is "autumn colours +/- Halloween. A nice easy one. For my first make I went with autumn colours as they are so spectacular at this time of the year.

As always there is a fab £20 voucher up for grabs for one lucky randomly selected winner to spend on the website.  You can find all the details of the challenge and more examples made by my talented teamies here.

This is what I got up to; I sprayed picked raspberry , fossilized amber and carved pumpkin distress stains onto watercolour card.

 I then added some fossilized amber and cracking campfire ink though the Visible Image strobes stencil using a blending foam. I do love these domed blending foams.

I stamped and cut out the large butterfly from  Butterfly effect I also stamped the circles swoosh onto the background.
I also stamped and cut out 2 using the butterfly in the VI minis #1 set

I coloured them with distress inks and added a little sparkle
I stamped one of the sentiments from the "Look forward with hope" VI set and also the sun. Then I put my card together with a few sequins as a final finishing touch.
Here it is 

I hope I may have inspired you to join in with our October "shades of autumn/halloween"challenge. You can use any stamps/products, the choice is yours. 
You can enter our challenge as many times as you like and combine with other challenges. There is also a £20 crafting voucher up for grabs to the lucky randomly selected winner to spend over on the Country View Crafts on line store. Once again all the details for the October challenge  here.
