ROP DT - Challenge 22 * Fall colours

Happy Monday everyone!!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend, and a lovely WCD :) I had some fun time making this card. It took me almost a day to colour the image and make the card. But I couldn't share it with you. I tried to finish another one to have something to blog about on our special day.. but I had no success :) I had other duties to fulfill, so I only managed to colour another image. Anyway let's talk present now!!

Thank you for all of you who joined us at for my challenge. There were lovely entries and I had a blast seeing Roses on Paper stitches of every kind and size on your gorgeous creations. Today it's our lovely Jodi's turn to set the challenge.. first for us, and now we extend it to you:

Fall colours: Orange, Brown and Green
combined with a challenge sketch of you choice!
Wo hoo! This is fun!

I used another gorgeous Elisabeth Bell design from our BnW Fall release: Hearty Thanksgiving. Aren't those two adorable?? They have quite some goodies there!! I had a blast colouring them with Copics.. and I had to use quite a lot (photo in the bottom of the post.

I used Midnight Madness sketch for my layout, and I kept in mind Copic Creations Challenge, which is pumpkin colouring. This is my first pumpkin, and thanks also to the tips they gave us I think turned out not too bad. Well, seeing I have used Copics only for about 6weeks! The papers I used for this card are taken from Basic Grey's June Bug and Mellow paper packs. I cut four squares and matted them on brown cs. I then distressed with vintage photo Distress ink. The paper on the background is distressed with Spiced Marmalade, for a more orang-ey shade.

I wanted the image to remain the main focus, so I didn' add a lot of embeellies this time. I only added dewdrops (from the mint choc bottle) and Basic Grey Rhinestones; organza ribbon and flowers.

The green brad is Basic Grey as well, and the hat pin and spacer from my stash. All highlighted material is from Roses on Paper store.

These are some details of the embellies.

The inside is kept simple and effective. I had that Thankgiving paper, which I saw most fitting to use, and made a panel for jotting with the label nestie I used for the image. The largest frame is done with the die, but the larger frame of the main front image is hand cut. I wanted it thinner than the inside one, and for the image to fit in properly, I had to use the largest die. So I had to make the frame myself.

I hope you like it, and that you let me know you came to visit me. The online smiles you leave in your comments translate into a big grin on my face each time I read your messages. Thank you for your encouragement and support. Big huggies from me to you!! God bless you!

Thanks for looking
