Pumpkin colours ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was a good one and you have awesome weekend plans. I recently realised that Crafters Companion was not keeping Leonie Pujol’s first designs in stock so I’ve been keeping an eye out as I especialy love some of them and as I was recently able to find this set I purchased it and here’s the first project I created with them ...

I created an A5 card for a change
Good to post
All the yummy details
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Country View Crafts Challenge Mixed Media with Autumnal Shades

Scrapy Land Challenge #76 Anything Goes 
used a Spellbinders die 
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Monochrome 
Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes  

I practiced my no line inking and colouring technique by stamping the dragonflies onto a piece of A5 cream paper and I coloured the stamped images with Brusho Watercolour Crystals and the background with a buff acrylic mixed media fluid. I used a gold gel pen to add definition to the antennae, the body and the wings and I added little splatters over the background.

I stamped the flowers onto snippets of white card and the sentiment onto a snippet that I had die cut into the elongated oval. The vellum at the side of the card was also in the snippets pile! The gorgeous ribbon had a bow added to it because there wasn’t enough ribbon left after using it here for another card so I used the small length to create a bow which was glued over the top of the ribbon. I really really enjoyed stamping, colouring and creating this card. It’s a simple-ish card but I love it because of the beautiful colours and the hints of shimmer. I also really love the dragonfly and flower stamps that are part of this set and I’m so glad I tracked it down. You will be seeing these stamps again and probably really soon lol! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
