I am in love with Michelle Perkett's images, so when she issued a challenge this week for earthy, fall colors, I knew exactly what image I wanted to use. I started with the sketch from Cupcake Craft Challenges. I sprayed my background with Tattered Angels and then distressed the edges with ink and sandpaper. My background papers are from CTMH - Twitterpated. I ran paper through my cuttlebug to emboss, and inked the raised designs - so this was great for the Thanksgiving challenge at Cuttlebug Spot and Cuttlebug Challenge. The challenge at Simon Says Stamp was also for Thansgiving or Thanks, and at Pixie Cottage Challenges it was for celebrations. I colored the image with copics, but painted the background moon with Sparkling H2O's. After that, I covered the entire image with liquid glass and then cut it out. Finally, I added some of my first crafting love - some beadwork. I made the beaded sheath of wheat in place of the typical flower. I love all of the dimension of this piece!
