OSAAT #181 - Autumn/Fall
The theme this week at One Stitch at a Time is Autumn/Fall. This time it was my turn to choose one of Jess's images at Stitchybear's Digi Outlet and I chose Floral Cap Nouveau L. I've used one of these Floppy Latte's capital letter images before and my DIL, who received the card, loved it. This time I chose the letter L as it's my sister's birthday in October - Libra, and her name is Lorna, the theme was autumn and so all the embellishments were leaves.
Check out the OSAAT challenge blog for details of prizes.
My card blank is a large square, 8x8, by Joanna Sheen. The autumn leaves backing paper is from a Joanna Sheen CD called Fabulous Flowers. I matted the BP on to maroon Papermill card as the background. I coloured the image with my trusty Promarkers and cut with a Spellbinders grand nestie. I set the image slightly to the left and after printing a small list of Ls I cut that with another Spellbinders die, edged it with a burgundy Promarker and positioned that to the top right. I was on for ages cutting a pile of autumn leaves in various shades of cream, red and brown card. I used Spellbinders and Crealies dies for the leaves. I've now got a pile of leaves ready for my next Autumn project!!
