A bunch of Autumn

Hello my crafty buddies.

As promised, more card and less waffle today, although I must thank you for taking the time to read my blurb and then coment too!!

Here is another autumnal creation to celebrate the colours that will soon be around us.


 The lovely digi image is by From the Heart and was coloured with Pro/Flexmarkers to match the papers which came from a book of papers that was a magazine freebie a couple of years ago. The IO butterflies were cut out of sections of the same paper and I added marcasite style gems to their middles. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and just added some twine for a bit of texture.

Here's where I'm going to play

Another Super card Sarah, love the colours, and also love the chat. I was really pleased to read your colours tip, pick papers first then colour image... How obvious is that? You wouldn't believe the time I waste searching for papers to match an image that I've coloured first! Jx
