Signs Of Autumn


     A new challenge has started at The Paper Funday this morning, this month's twist to our Anything Goes challenge is All About The Candy. I have chosen to stay with an Autumn theme by using one of our sponsor images, Signs Of Autumn by Jan's Digis.
     This digi comes blank or pre coloured, I chose to colour a blank image but used the pre coloured as a guide to help me see where one leaf stopped and another started.
     The blank image was printed four times on smooth white cardstock, this gave me one image to die cut with a rectangle, two to trim and layer, with one left to experiment on. I planned my colours on the play piece and tried out various combinations before colouring my main image with alcohol markers.
     Using foam pads I layered the jar after giving it a little curve and added the leaves on top. A small Thanks stamp added to the bottom makes it a useful little addition to my card stash.
     The main image panel was matted on a dark orange card then a very dark brown before going on a 7x5 Kraft card blank.
     Pop over to The Paper Funday to see all the fabulous inspiration the team have come up with, then come and join us with your project.
