Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge #5

Hi All and Happy Tuesday ! You in the mood for Fall ? There's a fun challenge going on at SSCC this week. Kathy Winter chose for this challenge, Ecclesiastes 3:1. " There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven." Read the chapter when you can. This very chapter makes me want to bow down and worship the Creator... what a great God ! Now the challenge is to use Fall colors. I thought long and hard about this. One of the things I love about Fall is taking a hayride, going to the apple and pumpkin farms , etc. I didn't find any dp in my stash that came close to what I wanted to do , but then I remembered I had this CottaMesh. The base panel was run through a Swirls CB folder . The image is from Mo's Digital and was stamped and colored with Copics ( YR09, YR16, E35, E55m E00, R20, YG17, B97, 00 ) . I then sponged Bliss Blue lightly around the image and cut out with a square Nestie. Next I took this wood grain dp and doubled up two square Nesties and cut out to frame the main image. The CottaMesh was then cut to fit underneath and frayed. The leaf brads are by Spare Parts and were painted with Smooch ( Pumpkin and Siren) and left to dry. Once dry, I added them to the corners. A jute bow was added to the top left with a mini pop dot . The sentiment is computed generated, cut with a Labels 4 die , cut in half , sponged with Distress Ink and secured to the edge of the " window" . And that does it! I really like the "looking out the window of the barn " effect that the CottaMesh gives. Make it a super day! The Lord bless you !
