Time of Mellow Friutfulness Day 4

Well the seasons come and seasons go and with Autumn fast approaching, the colours seem to be leading to the greens, reds, golds, and oranges and all colours in between.  People are staring to think of Harvest festivals and thing like that.  So hopefully my card reflects some of this.

So here is this weeks card:-

What was used :-
Piece of Kraft card (2 pieces)
5'' x 7'' Cream base card
Scrap of cream card
Jane Gill's Leaf Quilt Patch Work of Leaves
Stazon Black ink pad
Black Pigma Micron pen 0.3
Coloured Pencils
Stickles glitter glue pale gold
Liquid pearls red


1  Take the scrap of cream card and use the Black Stazon ink pad to stamp the Leaf Quilt.

2 Take the scrap of Kraft card and repeat step 1.  Once stamped I decided which of the small block on the design I was going to cut out and 3D.  This avoids colouring areas that don't need to be coloured.

3  Use the coloured pencils and colour in the designs required on both the cream and Kraft card.  I used orange, brown, yellow, red and 2 different greens.  I coloured the green areas first and then blended the other colours.  Some areas in the outer border were solid coloured. On the cream card don't colour the panels that will have the Kraft card images and on the Kraft card only colour the pieces that will be 3D on to the main panel

4  Cut out the entire cream based image on the edge of the outer stamped line.

5  Cut out the 3D pieces from the Kraft card cut on the outer lines of these panels.

6  Cut a matt of Kraft card that is 1/4'' larger on all 4 sides than the stamped panel.

7  Layer the base card, Kraft card and stamped panel together with double sided adhesive.

8  Use the black micron pen and faux stitch round the Kraft layer with dashes and around the base card  with dashes and crosses.

9  Take the pieces of stamped Kraft and apply them to the card use 3D foam to attach the pieces, this will given some depth and dimension to the finished card.

10  The final steps are to apply the liquid pearls to the spray panel on the stamped image (see picture above).  The stickles was added to all the dots and circles in the outer border.

There you have this weeks card, hope you like it.  For more inspiration and ideas check out the Woodware blog
