Think Monday - Think ATC - Handwriting

I haven't participated in a TMTA challenge for a little while so today, in between bigger projects, I made a quick little ATC incorporating some stamped handwriting.

This one has a decorative paper background from a little pad of ATC backgrounds. I have sprayed it with a gold moon shadow mist and also painted a lot of the background with the same mist to get a nice golden colour. The stamping comes from the flourish (Autumn Leaves) and a Hero Arts Old French handwriting stamp which would just about have to be my most used stamp I think. The vintage image and black German scrap are adhered with soft gel medium which I've used to seal the surface.

In yesterday's post I was celebrating spring - here are a couple of pictures of our decorative plum tree in bloom. See, spring really has arrived! And today's wind has just about stripped the tree of its blossoms! I have more in the washing basket with the dried laundry than there are on the tree.
And to finish, here is a quick snap of the city of Perth taken from the vantage point of Kings Park. I took this photo last Monday night while in Perth for Jude's "hen's night". Needless to say the night involved a stretch limo (hence the visit to King's Park) and champagne amongst other delights! If the photo is a bit blurry, blame the camera not the champers (or perhaps the full moon?)
