TLT! It's that time again!

Oh my goodness, I cannot believe yet another Tuesday has come around soooooo quickly! This week we were set the challenge by the Lovely Ladybugs Guest Designer for the month Ang. Ang has been with us for October and I hope she's enjoyed herself!
Ang set the challenge of making our own patterned paper! (Michele and I both said, "oh we did that for our mermaid cards can we use them" ha ha ha - no chance!) (Although we were only joking)

I had a clear image in my mind of what I wanted to create - and still have that finished card in my mind!!! I couldn't find 2 of the things I needed and started to panic a little because I had this picture in my head and no other ideas... so I thought to myself Saturday night " pick a stamp, pick colours and and find a stamp to make my patterned paper" and off I went! This is my interpretation...

I used the adorable Catflap Magnum (I felt guilty having picked Buttercup last week so couldn't not use this cute little guy and he's soooo cute - for a cat!)

I was inspired by the beautiful colours our in the fields at the moment, all those war yellows, oranges and reds - very Autumnal (except today is grey and miserable!)

Everything went together so well for this card!
I used 2 different stamps to create the patterned paper. I used a rusty red ink to stamp over the Honey Mustard CS, and a gold and bronze ink to stamp on the Coffee CS.
I heat embossed a layer of stamps with a glittery gold powder and then added another layer of bronze ink over the top. At the top of the card I used a bronze ink to the corners.
Materials you will need:
Catflap Magnum (LCI)
Honey Mustard, Coffee and Paprika Double Dot CS (Bo Bunny) - Funky Farm
Burnt Orange Double Dot Ribbon 5/8" (Bo Bunny)
Grass stamps
Gold, Bronze and Rust Inks
Glitter gold embossing powder

Make sure you check out my other Ladybug friends Cards, I'm off to do it too!! (You can find their links to the right of my blog)

Have a great Tuesday!! x
