Autumn and the Brat

      Once upon a time, there was a beautiful young lady who just had to have her way.  Well, Daddy finally said NO!  She stomped her feet so hard that the trees began to die.  Brat was shocked and saddened by the way she behaved.   Suddenly, the leaves began to turn brilliant in color!  Red, gold, orange!  All Brat's favorite colors!  She ran to Daddy and told him how sorry she was for her selfishness.  Grabbing his hand, she led him out to look at the trees.  Brat cried to her father, "Daddy, I was so bad that I killed the trees but look what happened to them after I realized what a selfish Brat I am!"  The moral of the story- thanks to Brat, it's an Autumn Challenge #131 at One Stitch AT A Time!  

Here is BRAT by Stitchy's wonderful Beary Dust Stamps-


Brat after she stomped her feet:
Beautiful and fun image to color.  Used Prisma pencils and a tad of OMS.  Brat was masked and then the trees and leaves were stamped as a background (unknown rubber stamps from my stash).  Framed her by cutting the leaves along the bottom, adhering pompoms along top and side, adhering to striped DP, then double layering with card stock.  Also added some roses from WOC, a double butterfly with Glossy Accents,  and that beautiful pin by Karen C.   I altered the pin a little by coloring some white pearls red using a marker and adding gold to the crystal beads.  Karen has a great selection of pins in her Etsy Shop.  They are so fun to add!  Along with the pin, that beautiful red die cut up in the right corner was a gift from her!

I guess this means you get to stomp your feet a little (or a lot!) and get in the mood to make an Autumn card and join us over at OSAAT!  While your there, check out the creations by OSAAT's talented Design Team.  And, we have Crimson Cloud as our sponsor PLUS a chance to win images in the Stitchy Store!

I'm going to go stomp my feet a little harder as our colors haven't changed yet.  Maybe I will get real creative too!  I'm going to try it!  Bye bye for now, Friends!  Happy Stomping!

  14. Arriving at the top of your blog reminded me that it is well overdue for me to watch that movie again and remind myself just how conniving Mrs Danvers was.

    Anyhow back to your card which is really great and a super scene.

    Thanks so much for joining us at Craft a Scene challenge this month.
