ASM - Photo ....

....  Good evening everyone - it's the first day of September here in the States and summer is back in full swing in Northville, it's been a fabulous day.  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! and this week we have a photo to inspire you.  Do tell us what inspires you about the photo - I think mine is obvious.  I think there's a definite autumnal/fall feeling to the image and here are my cards, I made two!

Stamps: Stitching Bear Digi - Mushroom Town (Alipeeps Art); Stampin' Up! - Sheltering Tree
Inks: SU - Early Espresso; Kaleidacolour - Cappccino Delight
Dies: Memory Box - Sleepy Hollow Oval Frame
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Early Espresso; SU DP - Early Espresso; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Staedtler Aquarell Pencils


I had fun with this card.  I printed the Mushroom Town three times on white card, coloured them with Copic markers and then selectively cut out the layers.  I then adhered the layers to give some depth to the image.  I die cut the tree frame from brown card and adhered it over the little town, and then carefully cut out the excess card from the bottom of the frame.  I coloured the sky with watercolour pencils.  I finished the front with a simple greeting and on the inside cut a mat layer of design paper and stamped a wonderful tree on the white panel.

I printed another image of the Mushroom Town, this time a little bigger (so much easier to colour) and diecut the finished image with an oval die.  I layered the image on another diecut oval and finished the front with a simple sentiment.

So cute, Deborah. I love the oval polka dot frame to echo the dotty toadstools and the colourful doors are fab! x

Deborah, these are both so amazing!! Your first card is incredible with that detailed die frame. Have never seen one like that before, its gorgeous!! And I love the stitched oval frame for your second one and I bet it was easier to colour being larger. Simply sweet!
