The theme of our challenge this week at I ♥ Promakers, chosen by Ruth, is Autumn and we are being sponsored on this occasion by Simon Says Stamp, so I do hope that you will play along with us.
My card uses a digi called ‘Fall Kitten’, the ever-so-cute cat entranced by a falling leaf as drawn by the talented Mo Manning and I have combined all the other elements of the card to fit in with the sketch over at Sketch and Stash. Well, that and a bit extra I have to admit, as I then added, what might otherwise have been a square card, to folded black A4 card with a sparkling mat.
The leaves were made using two Martha Stewart punches and were, like my main image, coloured with Promarkers, and just as in real leaves, each and every one is different. Once coloured, they were then shaped a little and secured with silicone glue to fit in with the sketch and to give the impression of a pile of fallen leaves and yet others still resolutely hanging on in there to their respective twigs. Look carefully and you will spot that two of the leaves feature bugs from Arthur’s Clipart which I have coloured in, again with Promarkers, and I think they give a nice touch of authenticity to the aging foliage. Whether the recipient is of the same opinion is another matter!
Well, good folk of Blogland, it has got to this part of the posting for my weekly reminder to bear in mind that you must use Promarkers when you enter the I ♥ Promarkers Challenge. I look forward to seeing your autumnal entries this week and leaving you a comment. I would love it too if you could leave me a comment in return so that I know that you have visited, and I thank you for each and every one of them.
Challenges I am entering this card into:
Sketch and Stash – design sketch (the second element of the challenge to use new stash is that I have not used this image before).
