October ATC Swap

Hi Crafters,

The theme for our swap this month was 'Weather' or ' Something beginning with O'
Can you guess which one I chose? :)

I created a 'smooshed' background using Distress Inks and stenciled the sun ray pattern using texture paste. When it was dry I dabbed Distress Ink Stain in Vintage Photo over the sun ray portion to define the pattern. The edges have been heat embossed with WOW Gold embossing powder. I had some Crafters Companion stamped and die cut leaves from a previous project so I thought I'd use them up here and added the acorn  and oak leaf  element which was a new purchase from my visit to the NEC earlier this month - it's from Carnation Crafts. The October die cut is from a Tonic set and I used Distress Glitter on it. Some white paint splatters to finish.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Creations - #402 ATG
Frilly and Funky - Fabulous Fall
Love To Craft - #40 ATG

That's all from me today, hope you have a great weekend.

Lovely mix of autumnal colors with the splatter of white drops makes me think of a late summery day in the fall. Beautiful ATC's and sure to be a hit in your swap! Thanks for joining The Funkie Junkie Boutique Fabulous Fall Challenge!
