Autumn Days

Over at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best the challenge is FALL FOR ME.We’d love to see your Autumn/Fall projects.Head on over to join in and see full details on how you could be the lucky winner of  a $10 Gift Certificate or GDT slot.You’ve got to take a look at the ever fabulous projects by the DT too.

For my card I’ve used the beautifully drawn AUTUMN SCENE from Digi Doodle Shop .There are some some specials this month – check out my side bar then why not head on over for some bargains !!

I printed the image out in quite a large size and coloured it with Promakers.I wanted to create a typical Autumn sky so I started with a layer of grey cloud,followed by some pale blue sky and finished with some orange,yellow and pink tones for where the sun hangs low in the sky at this time of year.I used a Promarker Blender pen to weaken and merge the colours.I used the same technique on the grass. I wanted the leaves and trees to be the main focus.I cut around the leaves and frame as much as I could and shaped the leaves and mounted them on tiny foam squares. (I’ve lost my silicone glue – help!!)

The base card is a size of my own invention!!I cut two pieces of Kraft 8″ x       7 1/2″ ,first scoring a little way in from the top on the back piece to make a hinge, then adhered them together using ultra strong DST.
