Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge Week 9.

Well,another week has flown past and already we are up to Challenge 9 at Scrapbook Sister's Card Challenge. This week the challenge theme is Autumn,my favourite time of year. I just love the gorgeous colours of the trees at the moment.

I decided to make an easel card using a Gayle Bond digi stamp,available exclusively at Scrapbook Sister's the "Seated girl"was just perfect for this. I coloured her using Copics and mounted her on to the folded edge using foam pads.I cut a Scalloped edge using the Cricut and glued one flat to the bottom edge and used foam pads for the middle, bottom one,placing them so that they make a wavy line effect. The greeting is from a set of Papermania clear stamps,I stamped it using Distress inks,cut it free hand and double matted it.

The flat backed self adhesive gems are also papermania and the flowers are a selection of prima flowers.

I think this girl should be called Claudia as she so reminds me of Claudia Winkleman. What do you think of the fur trim to the coat and hat? I so enjoyed playing with the colours,my youngest thinks it looks like Leopard print. I just dotted various colours all over the area then covered them using E00,not blending them,I then put a few drops of blender ink onto a piece of tissue and dabbed it over the area several times, looks great I think.
Hope you join us this week so that I can come visit your blog,
thanks for stopping by,

Your colouring is freakin' perfect!!! So good it mkes me drool. And I have no idea how you get distress inks stamping so clean, I use mine for messy jobs only.

Still experiencing easel fear - but the more I see of your cards the more I appreciate the inspiration to try one or two. Your coloring on this is lovely indeed.

p.s. I posted a bit about the continuing saga of the strange topsy-turvy tomato plants at my mother's you will know 'the rest of the story'.... LOL
