Rusty Shades of Autumn

The current challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is "Shades of Autumn/Fall" and my DT Sister, Paula, chose this fabulous theme!  Speaking of fabulous, if you stop by FSC, you will see some gorgeous inspiration.  With one week left to play, come on and join in and remember there is always a prize from Cottage Crafts and a chance to be among the "Top 3." 
It is funny how things come about as I was going to sit out the current challenge at FSC, as sometimes life can get in the way.  Then I saw Simon Says Stamp and Show "Rustification," and I played with a Rusty background, using Gooosebumps, Metallic Stains, and Rusty Hinge!  Inked up some "Rusty" goodness on ribbon, metal and grunge paper!  From there it just kind of evolved and then this AM, I saw Lisa's Bloggers Challenge, "Take Flight" and so imagination took flight.  I know that was silly, but that is exactly what happened!  I knew I wanted to catch up with the FSC girls, but just need a little lift! 
My little dress form was a previous failed attempt and once I inked over my "dislike" and picked off bits, I really like the rusty effect!  This was fun and now I need to get motivated to do a few house chores before the dinner hour calls!  Ha, I just realized the chain was suppose to hang off her shoulder!  Must have slipped during wing prep! 

Have a truly wonderful weekend and many thanks for stopping by today!

Oh, Terry, I love it! And how fun about the chain falling... to me it looked intentional, like it was whirling around her like a hoolahoop!

Oooh, Terry I love the rusty effect on this tag. The dress form looks great, I was thinking the chain looked good around the waist, then I read it was a 'mistake'!!! - still looks good to me.
Have a good weekend.

Hello Terri, Looks like I have missed a lot while I was gone. I did see some of your beautiful work on FB. But I love to look at it here on my big screen. Your tag here is fabulous. Love the wonderful background and the great colors you used. It sure was nice to escape the desert for awhile. And of course I heard we got rain when I was gone. Drats...

Hugs~
