Hi there 🙂 Time for my Sunday inspiration for Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook challenge. This month, our theme is Fall/Fall Colors. This is such a beautiful time of year, and we are looking forward to seeing all your autumnal makes 🙂 I used the image Blowing In the Wind, on of the many gorgeous images that can be found at the Etsy Shop. I colored her with my Copics, then fussy cut her out.
I die cut an olive green back drop for her, as well as a bare tree to tuck behind her. I glued everything to a piece of warm brown background paper, and added a bunch of punched butterflies (instead of leaves) and was not happy with it at all!!! After sleeping on it for a night, I decided to cut the top and bottom edges of the background in a curve, then ink them with distress ink. I placed it on a piece of shimmery gold paper, but it was still missing something! I got out my embossing folders, and decided on a swirly pattern that reminded me of wind blowing.
I added a sticker sentiment, and some orange twine (it was orange and white, but I colored it to match the rest of the colors) that I tied a butterfly charm to (also colored to match!) Some glittery “trails” for the butterflies, and a green mat to match the image backdrop finished the card off 🙂
