November's Creative Challenge-Autumnal

Wow! November already! and here in the UK, autumn is upon us, with the leaves changing colour slowly, as it has been so warm , but I feel that the cold weather will be on us very soon!
This month's challenge is Autumnal.  Interpret it in any way you like, as long as it has rubber stamping in it.

To join in with this challenge (we are limiting the challenge entries to 3 per person), is simple; all we would like you to do is, make a piece of artwork, making sure that you include the theme and some rubber stamping. Pop back here to link up using the Inklinkz at the bottom of this post, so that we can see what you've made and then, leave us a comment to let us know you have joined in with the challenge.
 As always, there will be candy for one randomly picked entrant - the winner will receive a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper

In addition, you can enter the same challenge on Facebook!  

To join us on just go to our new Facebook group, and send us a request to join..  There will be a prize for the Facebook challenge, as well as the blog challenge!

And don't forget....if you use The Artistic Stamper stamps on your entry, you will entered into the draw, twice!

Do check out our Facebook group as we have 2 new members of our team. 
Please welcome Angie Coomber, and Lesley Mackenzie, who will be our social media girls! 

Here is some creativity for you from the Creative Team to help you get started....

I stamped Lesley's Ivy stamp with wild honey, rusty hinge, fired brick and Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  To create the overlapping i masked over each image.  I used the Decay Upper Case Alphabet in the same colours, cut out some more leaves and used Peeled Paint distress ink for the background.

After blending Distress Crayons over my background, I added interest by placing the petal mask over the top. Over that I stamped with different Artistic Stamper stamps including the leaves from the  Dog Rose


I decorated a mirror with lots of die cut leaves, our Skeleton leaf stamps, Tit Belsoeur's Mushrooms. I used Cosmic Shimmer's Gilding Polish to colour the mirror, and stamped with Archivals. 

We hope that you will join in this month's challenge, and also join us on Facebook too.
We look forward to seeing your creations. Don't forget to add a comment when you have posted your entry.

Have a creative month
