Clean & Simple Autumn Colours

Good morning lovely crafty peeps!
It's time for the new challenge at 
Crafting For All Seasons where the challenge theme is
My card was inspired by the colours of the leaves on the trees
just round the corner from my house & out of the window where  work!
Here it is, I hope you like it!


The image I've used is Tequila Worm he's just one of the many 
different styles of image from our fab sponsor this time


The papers are from K & Co Hopscotch Boy Stack
I love these papers.
This is actually far from what I planned but sometimes I find 
a project tells me what direction it wants to go in! lol


I coloured the worm with my Promarkers, cut it out with a square die & inked 
with Antique Linen distress ink. Not sure you can see it that well, but 
I used a flexmarker to ground the image

 

The only embellishments I've added are some buttons which are threaded 
with some button twine. My sentiment was done on the pc using
a free font called Tequila which you can find here!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you in the challenge!

  10. Hi Dawn: This is just wonderful and hilarious! You are so right when you call it out for Autumn...the colors are so right on. And the image...ahhh just perfect. You've done a wonderful job for Ike's World Challenge. I particularly like the check pattern you put behind your cute character. The hat is yummy. The buttons are such a good embellie with your pattern colors. (I can see my comments don't have much symmetry as I am just loving each bit of your card and remembering so as I write!!! Sorry bout that. I think your only putting the buttons, as you say, are perfect because it really lets your image and fantastic coloring stand out and the sentiment really highlights the image; that is what makes it so hilarious for me! I know others will get a good laugh from it too. Thanks so much for coming over to IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE Dawn. We are the richer for it. See you again I hope. Soulfully Yours, Samara DT Ike's World Challenge
