Dream Valley Challenge #209 – Autumn colours

Come over to the Dream Valley challenge and join us for our latest challenge. A big thank you to Sheepski Designs for being our sponsor.

The image I’ve used is called “coffee break”. I printed the image into some white card and below the image I stamped the sentiment “Don’t let life ruffle your feathers”. Below this I lined up a die to give the pretty bottom to the topper. I cut this to make it a long section to fit onto the front of a 5×7 kraft card which I inked with some distress oxides. The same oxides I also used around the image to tone the white card I’d printed onto in with the inked base card and the coloured image. I chose some of my Chameleon pens (YO2, BR3, BR1, NU3, NG4, OR3, NU4, YO3, BR5, RD5, BR2, BR4, NU1 and NU00) to colour the image in tones of autumn.

I wanted to give some interest to the background of the card base as inked it just looked too plain. I had some leaves I’d previously cut and coloured in my stash so I inked these with the residual ink on the inkers and them I stuck them down and formed a more interesting background.

I’m entering this into Pammies Inky Pinkies #1936 challenge.
