Sending you lots of Love and Blessings

October 08, 2016

Hi there!
I'm Anna (al_handmade) and this is my last (*sigh*) post as a guest designer for this fabulous team. This is why I want to greet you all with a funny autumnal project featuring a little friend from “Fall Mice” stamp set.



First I drew a tree with Copic Markers and filled the background with multicolor leaves. I wanted to create a colorful autumn scene full of leaves and pumpkins and, with such a background, the "Fall Mice" stamp set was the perfect choice for building a happy scene.

I stamped the barrow, the mouse and some pumpkins directly on my card panel and colored them with Copics. Since I needed to create some dimensions, I stamped a new barrow and several other pumpkins on copic friendly paper, colored them, cut them and created a multilayered composition to enrich my card.



I chose a warm wish for this joyful scene. I stamped half of the sentiment directly on my card and half on a piece of kraft paper - heatembossing it with some white powder.

As a final touch I added some sequins and grabbed my Wink of Stella Clear Brush to make some pumpkins shine.



Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this project!
Have a nice weekend!

If you haven’t seen Jennifer’s video, here’s a link to it - Cards with Simple Movement.
