Signs of Autumn
I used the Paula Oakley Collection CD for my Card this time. Paula is incredibly talented and her paintings have an almost photographic quality to them.
I thought Autumn Catnap was just perfect for this challenge.
The backing papers are all from the same folder and I matted them all onto black card stock before sticking them to an Ivory card blank. I matted the image onto black then ivory and then added this at an angle. I made the sentiment by shrinking the backing paper down to compress the colour banding - using MCS and then added the wording. I matted it onto black then ivory to match the image and then added 3 small gems. The flowers were made by using pages from an old book the paper was very thin so I glued several pages together and coated them in Mod Podge before I cut them out using a Tim Holtz die and used gems in autumn tones for the centres. The leaves are just peel offs that I put onto ivory card stock and then cut round and I added a real skeleton leaf to finish.
