Autumn Splendor.

Hi Everyone!  It has been a nice day. I don't think I've left the house today. I got two cards completed. My oldest daughter came for a visit. She hung out with her sister and brother. That is always nice. I love when she comes and hangs out with them. It was a good, happy, crafty day :)  I'm hoping for another of pretty much the same tomorrow :)

Here is my card:

This is Autumn Fantasy from Ching-Chou Kuik. I just love this image! I colored her with Copic Markers. I decided to try something new and I used watercolors for the background. That was kind of fun! What else... I did a small bit of layering. I added some Wink of Stella clear to her eyes, the cats's eyes and wings and the leaves at the top. I did some distressing on the patterned paper. I inked all of the edges. I used an embossing folder on kraft and then inked those leaves a bit with Sepia. I also added some stitching around that layer. I added some ribbon and some dew drops. The You're Special stamp is Paper Smooches. On the inside I used a My Favorite Things rectangle die on the patterned paper and inked all the papers.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
  • Hair: Y11, Y18, YR04, YR07, R24, R29, R59
  • Red Leaf: R24, R29, R59
  • Orange Leaf: Y18, YR04, YR07
  • Yellow Leaf: Y00, Y11, Y18
  • Green Leaves, Girls Eyes and Wines on Robe: YG21, YG23, YG25, YG67
  • Cat Wings and Eyes: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR24
  • Cat: C00, C3, R20
