It's a beautiful thing when you can have the best of both worlds. Swirlydoos November kit is so jam packed with swirly goodness that there is always left over product once my reveal day LO's are done. I can then use what I have left between my main kit and all of the add ons to use for challenges, contests, tutorials and yes, even my work to showcase the gorgeous stamps for Heartfelt Creations. I also used this particulat LO for the Stop the Hoarding Challenge at Swirydoos..I hoard my Dusty Attic Gates..I have a ton!! So stop saving those "pretties" because they're pretty...Use them!!! That's why you bought them!!

I stamped the Swirly Autumn Leaves PreCut Set onto the cardstock, then stamped the single Open Leaves cut them out, and sprayed with Glimmer Mist, then adhered them over the stamped images to match the pattern.

I then punched different size smaller flowers with the Posey patch die using mulberry paper, distressed the edges a bit, and layered and formed the flowers then used Glimmer mist to color in Pineapple then touched the edge of the petals in Scarlett and added a green flower punch underneath along with some wire swirls that I covered with floral tape.

The Dusty Attic Chipboard "Beautiful" was painted with Apple Barrel Acrylic paint in Satin Cream and slightly sanded for a distressed look.

I painted the Dusty Attic die cut gate with Tim Holtz Crackle paint, and when it dried, inked with soft brown ink, then misted with Glimmer Mist in Scarlett and added some May Arts vine ribbon. Kind of looks like a rusty old, but beautiful gate.
