And this month the added colour is a bit of a nod to Autumn - mandarin orange. Mmm not my favourite colour, unless it's combined with purple for Halloween, but it's good to step outside of my comfort zone occasionally.
Fortunately for me the photo that I wanted to use had loads of orange seats in the background. Can you feel the excitement on my grandson's face? It was his first ever attendance at a live football match. Just as well they got that fitted in before the lockdown!
A decided lack of orange papers in my stash led me to using the Funky Fossil stencil Watercolour Lines as my starting point. I then added in some stamped Autumn leaves and grungy shapes from Precious Remembrance Shop and Funky Fossil. And I did find a few paper scraps lurking and thought the polka dots echoed the oranges from the inspiration pic as well as being the shape of a football
I lucked out with finding a football sticker too and added it right under the title.
Stencil: Funky Fossil, watercolour lines
Stamps: Funky Fossil, Distressed Elements; Precious Remembrance Shop, Positive Thoughts, Fall Colors, Totally, Little Things
Ink: SU, tangerine tango
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles
Stickers: CV, Boys Rule; Simple Stories, So Rad; EP, Teen Spirit; Jillibean Soup; Elle's Studio; Tim Holtz Small Talk
And now it's over to you. Looking forward to how you use the mandarin orange on your layouts.
Thanks for looking! Stay safe and keep crafting!
