This weeks challenge over at There's Magic In The Air was to be inspired by a picture in an way. You can stop by TMITA to see it and grab the FREE image as well.
I wanted more of an old fashion feel to my card this week. So I started off by printing my image on vanilla card stock. I colored my image with my colored pencils. I popped up my sunflower on foam dots for dimension as well as my computer generated sentiment and a few leaves. I punched my leaves in the scrap vanilla card stock and then cover them with a copper embossing powder which made them look more medallion like and then I drew on the veins to the leaves. I wish they showed up a little bit better here because they look really lovely and metallic and the ribbon has some metallic copper running through it as well. I also roughen up my edges of my image and sentiment and inked the edges with my colorbox chalks; a light brown. I folder the top right corner over of my image and finished it off with a cute little coppery mini brad and then rolled the same corner over with the green mat.
I look forward to the November images, I think there will be a lot there you will just love. So, in the meantime, create and have a great day!
