Good Morning all, its once again time for a new challenge over at
Make My Monday with the theme this fortnight being
COLOURS OF AUTUMN/ FALL
For my birthday i was given a copy of the creative stamping magazine, first time ive ever had it, it came with a beautiful set of autumnal stamps - right up my street so i didn't hang around to try them out, i made this card for a friends birthday that was last week.
I dug out an old bobunny paper pad full of autumn papers. I first decided which paper i wanted for the background, i wanted the 2 large flowers on it to be visable so used it on its side. (the recipient was probably eagle eyed to notice the tiny script in the background on its side - something i only noticed after making the card!) I mounted this paper onto dark maroon card and the white 6x6 cardblank.
I stamped my squirrel 3 times, once onto white card and then onto 2 different papers, i die cut the white one into a stitched circle. Then cut out all of the dark paper one and glued it onto the white one and then i cut the orange one and again added over the top with glue gel to give him some shape.
I stamped the sentiment onto white card and die cut into a circle, i then mounted both circles onto maroon and then the cardbase. I then die cut lots of little leaves from papers and the maroon card and arranged them around my squirrel. Enamel viva drops then added in co-ordinating colours.
Close up of the squirrel. After paper piecing him i added a little bit of grey pen for shadow and white gel pen to his eye and nose.
