Autumn Bliss

Hi there 🙂  I’m here today with my last inspiration piece for this month’s Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge….with the theme of Autumn. With the leaves turning, and the temperatures dropping, it certainly feels like Autumn, even though the calendar says we still have a week of summer left!  I used Sunflower, from the Flora and Fauna set, that can be found in Ching-Chou’s Etsy store.  I colored this lovely image with my Copic markers, then cut it out with a wonky stitch rectangle die from MFT, that I inked with Distress Inks before cutting, to give the stitching some definition.

  I went through my paper stash, frantically looking for ideas as to what to do, lol.  I finally settled on a weird green …. a color I never would have chosen with this image had I not held the image up to it and saw the WOW!!  I used this green to cut out a number of leaves with some Little B dies, which I inked with some fall colored Distress inks.  I glued the leaves onto the backing paper, loving the subtle effect the ink on the same paper gave them.  I needed a bit more to define the image, so I cut another rectangle from brown CS, and set it at an angle underneath.  Loving the colors of autumn that are showcased on this card 🙂
