another sneaky peep


i just love this image from Sheena's new sketchy stamp set to be launched on sunday ......
so versatile
i went for Autumn colours for this card.... got abit crafty with my crafters companion water colour card
i inked up the stamp in smoky grey versafine ink for the trees on the left hand side...then used the brayer to get the mirror image of the trees and just rolled it over it came out lighter but i liked the effect gave the image some distance then stamped and embossed the sun with clear embossing powder

water coloured the sky with layers of different strenght yellows and orange with a tiny touch of brown to get the dark edge to the sun and shadows in the clouds once it was dry i distressed around the edges in spiced marmalade and walnut stain
made my own backing paper using the offcut from the sizzix leaf die as a stencil coloured the leaf shape leaving a bit of white paper here and there
the leaves i just blended all the colours together then cut and embossed matted and layered onto gold mirri card added card candi onto a 8x8" card blank
