Autumn Fashion

Hi crafter's

I've been really busy crafting of late, went through a period where my mojo seemed to have left me, and now just not enough time to do all the things I have in my mind. I had to get this card done for the Crafty Individuals challenge though because it will be closing soon. The theme this time is Autumn Fashion. The colours I have used are wild honey, rusty hinge, barn door and bundled sage. To start I stamped the lady in black ink, stamping a mask at the same time. Cover her over. The maple leaf is a stencil by Clarity Stamp, you get the iny and the outy which is really useful. Start with the leaf to the left of the lady, hold the stencil in place and ink through wild honey with cut n dry foam. Put the cut out piece over the leaf and move the stencil over. Use barn door next. Repeat this until all the leaves are in place. Now stamp in the leaves with the same colour ink for a tone on tone look, I used the flourish stamp and one of the collage stamps. You will need to mask off again as before. Take the mask off the lady and colour in with bundled sage. Ink up the words Paris and London from the Ladies Boudoir stamp set and stamp as shown. To finish use a fine liner pen in a matching colour to drawing stitches around the leaves, Mount on to a white base card. That's all for this one. Hope you like it.
