Default F4A240 - "Au Naturale" - 09/26/14

F4A240 - "Au Naturale" - 09/26/14

This is probably NOT what you are thinking!! Hahaha!! Today's challenge is to use some sort of natural fiber or material in your creative process ... I used a LOT of examples in my samples to give you a head start ... I have burlap, natural ribbon, linen thread and wood ... I am CERTAIN you all have "natural" bits of stuff in your stash ... show me what ya got!!

Here is my sample:

Natural Leaves and Banners

Keyword: F4A240

F4A240 Gallery

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
You’re done!

Rather than natural colored things, I went with silk ribbon which is a natural fiber. I dyed and sprayed it to go with my card. Fun idea for a challenge, Wendy. Thanks.

I tried to use burlap - but I finally had to go with feathers for my natural effects.
Here is mine!

I finished my card in my pj's rather go Au Naturale *giggle* Wendy, this was a great challenge, thanks so much. And, as always, I can think of all kinds of stuff to include with those natural fibers now that I've finished - guess I'll have to create another

Here's my card: Pumpkin Spice.

"Au Naturale" - totally love the theme of this week's Free For All Challenge! I've had a ball rediscovering all the awesome natural products in my stash and popping them onto some cards.

Here are 3 of them (I was on a roll!):

Fish on the line! by Boss - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Birds on the Garden Bench by Boss - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Gee Thanks! - Bird on a banner by Boss - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Can't wait to look at all the amazing cards in the gallery.
Thanks for letting me play along with all of you in this challenge!

Well, I am squeaking in under the wire again. Mine is intended to be a Christmas card, but it has leaves on it, so I hope that counts as a fall theme.

Doing a little catch up today so I am meeting the challenge here and also at the Inspiration challenge with this card.
It was lots of fun and I realized when I uploaded I forgot to clean up my poor scarecrows mouth. Better get the eraser out.

For a minute there I thought we had to make a card while we were 'au naturale'! This was a great title Wendy and brought many laughs, I'm sure.
