I am switching the gear from Christmas to Fall scene a little. Rich yellow and orange are my go to colors for fall. The distress oxide inks are too pale for the whole panel. I had to add some distress inks to make the color richer. Then I found they are easier to blend if distress oxide prepped the base. Score! Now blending shouldn’t be a big problem at all!
Fussy cut all images from Neat and Tangled My favorite nut Stamp set and colored with Copic markers
Ink blended with Tim Holtz distress oxide and inks on a watercolor paper
Created the windows using My favorite things Stitched Rectangle die, Large one for the base and small one for three windows
Added foam tape on the border of the frame to create window dimension so I could add Neat and Tangled Festive Fall Sequin Mix in them
Before assembled the windows, I stamped “You are my favorite” sentiment on the background
Assembled all images around the windows and adhered the panel onto a A2 card base.
Where to start…Umm…I wanted to create a fall scene with detailed background. So I pulled out all things that I could think to help me reaching my goal (craft dies, inkpads, sequins…and so on) There’s a song singing as “Can’t take my eyes off you…Can”t take my mind off you…” I was going like “Can’t take my hands off you…” Before I knew it, I added A LOT into this tiny A2 card. If I have more room on the panel, the badger and the mouse would be in there too. From now on I need to remind myself, sometimes less is more.
