Autumn


Autumn isn't here yet - but hopefully will be soon. At least the colors on this card remind me of autumn...that's a start anyway! Susan sent me a picture of a card using these images that someone had done and posted on SCS. She thought I may want to CASE it at some time in the future. Well, I lost it! Yep, it's gone.......to where, I don't know. I'm sure it's in this lovely computer somewhere but have no idea where at this time. It'll turn up though, I'm sure. This isn't a CASE of the card but similar since I used the Pocket Silhouettes and the Autumn Days images (SU) and cut out the pheasant. The layout I used for this is for the KAH-Wink-E-Dink challenge - a sketch challenge. I LOVE this layout!

I used some Cajun Craze, Old Olive, More Mustard, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. I sponged (lightly) around each of the panels. Now this is where it just got tricky......Ok you've got the middle image in Old Olive, so you sponge in Old Olive, right! Now, you have the next image in Cajun Craze, so you sponge with that color.....Doing good......Go to the last (why is it always the last one?) image and it's stamped in More Mustard. I grab the ink pad and start sponging away and look down, and lo and behold, I've sponged in Old Olive! UGH!!!!! Gotta fix that so I don't have to re-stamp that image.........So I took all three panels and sponged them in all three colors! YES!

Thanks for stopping by.................

Great fall colors and very pretty card.

I actually like your version much better than the original one I sent you a link to. The design is more pleasing and colors are prettier. I think the three colors of sponging looks like an "on purpose" and ties everything together. I really like the pheasant as a cut out accent. Great fall card.

Great recovery, love the colors and the images. Can't believe you cut out the pheasant you have more patience than I have :) Beautiful card.

Anne Marie said...

Wow! Just beautiful! I am in awe at how perfectly you cut out that pheasant!
I couldn't even tell you had a "sponging mishap", although reading about it made me chuckle. I think we ALL have had those moments! :)

So autumn-y! I LOVE it! I think your "fix" for your "oops" was perfect. Sometimes the best things happen when I'm desperately trying to save a card I messed up. :oP
