Autumn Leaves


Hi everyone,


Middle of the week and I wanted to share with you a card that I have created for the Crafty Creations Design Team.


The theme for the challenge is Autumn Leaves and the challenge is sponsored by Digi Doodle.


I have used the sponsor’s image and the cardstock I have used is Always Artichoke and Cajun Craze.


The Cajun Craze cardstock has been embossed with the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder.


They say that practice makes perfect, well I am not sure that I will get to perfect but I am definitely practicing colouring in images. 


I have used the aqua brush with the following inks to colour the image.  Always Artichoke on the leaves and reeds along the water.  The rocks are coloured in with Crumb Cake and the log, fishing stick and little boys hair are coloured in with Chocolate Chip (now retired).


There is a touch of Bashful Blue on the water and very lightly in the sky and bucket and hat have been coloured in with River Rock.


The little boys top is coloured in with Night of Navy and his pants Cajun Craze.


I have also cut out the little boy and the stick from a second image and layered it on top of the other to add a 3d effect.


Here is my card..





Stamp set: Digi Doodle image

Card: Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Copic Cardstock
Ink: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip (retired), Cajun Craze, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, River Rock, Crumb Cake
