SIGNS OF AUTUMN

CC186: really rust, chocolate chip, baja breeze
Wish RAK Challenge Item: DP

I had planned on this being a card for this week's Mojo challenge. But you know when mistakes happen and you have to cover them up... and then the card just takes a new path? This was one of those cards. LOL!

This card measures 5x5.

AT THE FARM

I made this card during the Labor Weekend challenges. And Wow! This took forever... like almost 2 hours. I was so nervous. LOL! I drew the side of the barn. That was the most nerve racking part because everything else was done and if I messed up the barn, there goes the whole card. But I think it came out pretty good. :) This scene is so big I couldn't play with layouts or do much embellishing. I finally decided on ribbon in the corners. I'm bow impaired, so I was pretty happy with that, too. LOL! The sky is lightly sponged with soft sky. I used a Micron pen for the drawing and Copic markers for coloring. The lone leaf on the ground is popped up on a dimensional. I used the fern stamp from Watercolor Minis on the ground and for the tree leaves.

FLUFFLES


I made this card a couple of years ago, I think.... back when I loved multiple background stamps on a single card. I never would have dared to part with DP back then. LOL! I still love Fluffles!

I have gobs and gobs of patterned paper that I was hoarding ... I should have used it while I loved it because it's not doing anyone any good off in a box now is it??
