Do You Ever Get That Feeling

Hello.  Welcome.  There's lots of autumn challenges appearing around blogland and our weather was full on autumn today.  Cold and damp and drizzle.  I prefer those cold crisp autumn days when the sky is blue, your breathe is a cloud and you can go through the piles of leaves with the noise of a strong wind or maybe a steam train.  I would also be very glad to see summer again.  They did say it was coming back this week but obviously it got a little sidetracked.  A bit like me.........

Anyway, Stampotique want us to Refresh it.  Revisit an old favourite stamp and give it a new lease of life.  So I decided to use Rabbit, who hasn't been out in the woods for a while and add Wicked Wednesdays ATC challenge of Fall Fun

I started by stamping Stampotique's Rabbit and masking him.  Can you see him?  I used DI Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw for the background base.  Then I stamped Judi Kins Leaves in DI Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Walnut Stain.  Maybe I should leave Rabbit hidden in the woods?

But no, out he pops, all dressed in his best.  Light and Dark Green Wink of Stella.  I added some Walnut Stain to give him somewhere safe to stand.   I had decided this was going to be a single layer ATC but I always think Rabbit is nervously looking over his shoulder for something lurking just out of sight.  So, one layer be gone!!

BOO!  I cut a hole in my ATC and folded back the edges.  Then I backed it with black card, which also made the backside nice after the earlier inky extravaganza!  I added a pair of wobbly eyes.  I was going to add more, but it didn't look right, so Rabbit will just have to be discontent with one pair peering out at him.  I was hoping it was a scary monster from the 5th dimension but looking at it now it looks more like a sunflower that has had too much sun!!  LOL
