Creative Moments Challenge 102

Happy Wednesday

This time over at Creative Moments the theme is as always Anything Goes and the optional twist is fall colours. There is also a wonderful Freebie and a Discount Code over there from the lovely 
So go check it out!

We have 2 wonderful sponsors this week


My first card uses the Rick St Dennis image - Billie Jo



The picture does not show very well that the leaves on the left are done with Dreamweaver gold embossing paste, the rest are done with a mixture of Distress inks, this is all done over a Distress ink background. The circle and pumpkin embellishment are Spellbinders - Pumpkin Circles. The wonderfully drawn image is coloured with Copic markers and cut out with my Scan N Cut. I used Glossy Accents on the flowers.


My second card uses the Robyn's Fetish image - Five Pumpkin Friends


The image is coloured with Copic markers and cut with my Scan N Cut, the pumpkins have been given the Glossy Accents treatment. I used distress inks for the background(can you see a theme emerging here?). The clouds in the blue sky were made with a Clarity Cloud Mask . The grass was created using Distress inks and Clarity Brushes, if you have not tried these yet then in my humble opinion you are sure missing out, you get almost an airbrushed effect and can control your inks for a more subtle effect. The texture on the grass is a little stamp that is in a stamp collection a wonderful gentlemen gave me when his wife passed away, as is the foliage. I hope she likes what I make using her stamp collection. The sentiment is from Happy Fall by Gina K Designs which I think is now sadly retired. The sentiment is mounted on Spellbinders Fancy Tags
