Well the weekend is nearly over and just because I want the days to pass quicker time seems to be going so slow. I know it's rather naughty of me to want to speed up time but I'm counting down the hours until my granddaughter arrives in England in a couple of days and I can have my first ever granny cudddle.
Anyways, I'm here with my third card for Darnell's NBUS challenge and this time I've managed to use up two more unused items. I decided to try to make a simple autumnal scene using Memento inks with a Designs By Ryn stencil 'flowing branches' for the tree (my first NBUS item) on hammered card and then I carried on with the Memento inks and some cheap make-up foam pads to colour in the sky and the ground - I tried to give the impression of all those fabulous colours of fallen leaves but not sure I achieved it. I used a Penny Black bird stamp from the 'spread cheer' set (my second NBUS item) but only inked up half the birds, and for the sentiment I used a Clearly Besotted stamp which I twisted when putting on the acrylic block so that it would follow the line of the branch. I had a rummage through the craft cupboard and found an old patterned A4 sheet of card (not sure where from) which I folded and used as a base card (it just didn't work with a white card blank) and attached the image with some sticky pads.
I must say it does look better IRL than in the photo
I shall also enter this in the following challenges
Designs By Ryn 'September customer creation' challenge
Penny Black and More challenge 'add a sentiment'
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'let's fly away'
