Dull November

I'm not sure where the year is going - November already but at last I've made my next postcard for The Craft Barn's Twelve Month Challenge based on Sara Coleridge's poem The Months.  

It mentions dull so what could be better than Tim Holtz's Brolly Man stamp on a dull bluey-grey distress background with rain drops.   Really mad too as I have a cheap clear stamp which I have used a lot but this time his brolly has torn...grrr!   Anyway to finish this off I've got my old leaf punches out and used up some odd bits of inked card.  He was supposed to be ankle deep but he is a little too big for the postcard so he's knee deep in leaves!!

Anyway hope you like and thanks for visiting.  I can't believe we only have one more month to go!!

  1. I do love umbrella man and he looks great knee deep in those beautiful leaves! The raindrops in the background are very effective too. Love this. Anne xx

  2. Ah - always loved the brolly man! Perfect postcard!

  3. Umbrella Man is always a favourite. He looks really good standing in the fallen leaves. A great postcard!

  4. Super postcard - we're all knee deep in leaves after the storms! Thank you for joining The Craft Barn Month Challenge xx

  5. Great card! I love umbrella man, he comes in very useful doesn't he! xx

  6. The autumnal leaves brighten up the dull day and a good use of those little bits of card. A great postcard.
