Crafts and Me DT and Deep Ocean Challenge DT

Today is my turn to host the Crafts and Me blog and also the Deep Ocean Challenge. I have combined the two on my creation. The Deep Ocean Challenge theme for this fortnight is ribbons. You may remember my summer canvas I created for last week's Crafts and Me Challenge. This is one of it's counterparts - a canvas depicting autumn.

I have used the gorgeous Noon digital image from Crafts and Me and coloured her with copics.

I have added lots of autumn details. The tiny pinecones are recycled from a flower arrangement I had. The gorgeous wooden butterfly is by Kaisercraft.

I used a Hampton Arts alphabet stamp set to create the letter tiles. I have embossed them with copper embossing powder.

As our Deep Ocean Challenge is ribbons I decided to do something a little different to a flat ribbon to really show the gorgeous bronze satin off. I have simply twisted it before attaching at each end of the canvas. The buttons are from my stash. The stamping on the edges of the canvas is a Stempelglede stamp, also embossed with bronze.

I added a gorgeous Prima flower along with various leaves from my stash and some small rosebuds. The bramble was from the same flower arrangement as the pine cones. I was so frustrated when I was making it as I knew I had kept them all for years and sadly could only find one of the little brambles - hopefully I'll find the rest somewhere and be able to add a few more!

Why not pop over to the Deep Ocean Challenge blog to see the rest of the team's stunning ribbon creations. I hope you like it thanks for looking! x
