Leaf It

A great challenge for this Sunday on our digital download blog "Dottie's World". Lou set the challenge for us this week and she wants to see leaves, whether paper, fabric, stamped or real, plus of course a Charmed download...

I used one of the images from the new Sugar & Spice bundle for my card, and coloured it in with Copic markers:



Lots of leaves on there. The paper on the front is a leaf paper and the paper inside the card is the same design but bigger. I used the Basic Grey Origin 6x6 paper pad, where the designs are smaller than the 12x12 paper, on the front, and the 12x12 inside. All other leaves on here are K&Co Wild Saffron grand adhesions.



The sun was cut on my Quickutz Silhoutte and coloured with Copics and that gorgeous lace is Prima. Pearls are Blue Awning pearls coloured with Copics to get the bronze colour to coordinate with the Wild Saffron Leaves.

Quite simple inside but the paper is quite busy so anymore would be cluttered I think. used Nestabilities for the round shape and a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser for the rough edges of the actual card.




Pop over and see what the other design team members have created for your inspiration, and then join in so we can see your work.

Thanks for popping by ♥
