Leaves

Over at One Powerful Hour the challenge this week is...

Leaves...

The October Paula's Kit Club was leaf themed and in it came the lovely stamp that I used on the front of this slide mailer. I just thought it was the perfect autumn/leaf stamp that I have seen in a long time.

To prep the slide mailer I painted it all with Vintage crackle paint from the Tim Holtz collection. On the front I added a glittery swirl in autumn splendor glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Then I affixed the stamped image that I had stamped in brown and painted/highlighted with Twinkling H2O's on gold paper.

The inside if the slide mailer is not as glamorous. I have been in love with the image of the woman and just had to use her...it wasn't until after I had her glued in place that I realized she would be really cold in that outfit in the fall LOL...to enhance and hide the fact that she is not large enough for the opening I added various feathers.

The leaves on the left hand side are stamped on the same gold paper as the front image and highlighted with Twinkling H2O's also. To finish this piece off I added the "Fall" sticker and the small rhinestones in the corner.

I think this took me a little over an hour but I'm not sure. I kept messing with it after I had things all planned out and forgot to watch the clock because I was having so much fun.

Thanks for looking.

Wow! She is so very lovely. What a wonderful idea for slide mailers, too. I seem to always have these things make an appearance, only at a time I'm not sure what to do with them. I love how you've turned on into true loveliness. It would be fun to make a batch of these to go around the Thanksgiving table! :)
