Looking pretty for Autumn


** Please click on the pic for a clearer view 🙂 **

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Autumn Leaves.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Molly – Looking Pretty by Crafty Sentiments Designs has been coloured with Spectrum Noir Pencils and then blended out for a softer look.I chose some lovely papers to go with her and the top panel has been embossed.A little faux stitching has been drawn around the edges using a fine liner pen.After adding the die cut border three lengths of jute twine were adhered above it,the ends on the right hand side have been left free.I tied the bow allowing the loose ends to create multiple tails.The panel with the totally adorable Molly lays flat and I die cut a frame then raised it on some foam tape for some dimension.The wooden leaves and toadstool have been colourised around the edges with a Spectrum Noir Pencil then I applied Blending Solution with a paper stump for a more muted effect before being arranged around the frame.
