Midweek Magnolia's DT Creation

Hello my lovelies how are you all? The weather here is awful, really awful, we have terrential rain, bad winds.........which can be awful when you live next to the sea lol & its so grey & gloomy we've got lamps on. So my plan is to stay in where it is nice & warm :0)
Now I'm late but I'm finally here with my DT Creation for Midweek Magnolia Challenges & this week we have the theme.........
AUTUMN/FALL COLOURS
Now I made a bit of a mistake & just thought Autumn & thought of Halloween & as I have lots of these to make I made another Sweetie Bag for Halloween...........but forgot to go with Autumn colours.......altho we do still see green dont we, we have evergreens all in our garden so they never lose colour lol.........trying to let myself off here lol.

This is a boy sweetie bag........so of course went with the lovely Edwin/

I have added to the bottom a Grassland Border & a Doo-hickey Fence. The grass is in black card & the fence I sponged with Black Soot & Peeled Paint distress inks......I did put a wee bit too much black on the fence but it still looks ok.

I cant actually find this stamp in Sir Stamp A Lot which is where i got him from 2 years ago :0( sorry peeps. I have done with quick colouring using copics & prisma's.......so quick this way is lol.
The sentiment I printed out then cut it out using the top of a Doo-Hickey tag die, I even inked my thumb a wee bit & pressed on to get the print lol. Gravestone button is from my stash.

Added Tim Holtz clock & inked it again with Black Soot & Peeled Paint distress inks, added less black tho this time lol. Added green card to the centre. Paper is Basic Grey edged with Black Soot.

Ingredients used............
Edwin stamp - Magnolia
Sentiment - Delicious Doodles
Magnolia Doo-Hickey Dies - Bunny Zoes
Tim Holtz clock die
MB Grassland Border die - My Crafty Heart
Basic Grey paper
Brads from stash
