Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness …

… is this month’s theme at Country View Challenges.  I don’t really own any overtly autumn themed stamps or dies, so I thought I would make a meadow scene using autumnal colours, and poppies which I always associate with autumn.

I cut a piece of stamping card slightly smaller than DL size and blended my background sky using Distress Oxide inks. I created my sun using a circle mask and some brown Distress Ink, then stamped my flowers and grasses using various colours of Versafine Clair.  I coloured my poppies with red Sakura sparkle pen, and highlighted the whole scene with yellow sparkle pen, then added some wisps of mist with white pastel pencil. I added a sticker sentiment to finish, edged the finished panel with black marker pen and matted onto my card blank.

This is another very sparkly card that doesn't really show up in the main photo - here is an angled pic.

Stamps: Lavinia Group Poppies, Wild Poppies, Dandelions, Field Grass, Birds;
Media: Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks ( Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimon, Barn Door); Versafine Clair (Nocturne, Pinecone, Golden Meadow); Versafine (Vintage Sepia); Sakura Stardust pens (red, gold); pastel pencil (white);
Other: Tim Holtz Idea-ology Small Talk sticker.
