Lexi’s Creations - #48 Autumn

Over at Lexi’s Creations this time we want to see your interpretation of Autumn, I chose Autumn colours for my card.

Our Sponsor this time is image and I used one of Lexi’s gorgeous digi images called Elaina for my creation.

Lexi 48 WM

I have coloured her with a combination of copics (skin tones) promarkers (dress, shoes, bag and hair) and prismas (shading). Her wings have glamour dust on them.

The mat is from Kanban and was a quite hideous pink (donated by a Friend - I wonder why!!) and I just inked over it with Victorian Velvet DI, and when I buffed it off the lovely gold foiling popped back through.

The flourish is a new Cheery Lynn Die called Victorian Romance which I cut out of orange card and then embossed with Sheena’s wow Clear Holo powder having first gone over it with Victorian Velvet DI in an attempt to match the diecut mat, and the leaf embellishment came from my stash as did the flowers. The sentiment is one of Sheena’s from her Lil Bit Sketchy Range.

Lexi 48 1 WM

The beautiful papers are from the Basic Grey Indian Summer pad, which I distressed around the edge and embossed with Sheena Wow powders, and the fabulous bling is the Frantage mica Fragments, which are both blingy and dimensional, unlike guilding flakes which are blingy and flat. The Fragments are meant to represent the glorious carpet of fallen leaves which occurs every Autumn. All those beautiful orange, red and brown colours floating around your feet as you walk.

Here is a close up so you can see the gorgeous differences in colour and the fabulous dimension they create.
