When I was looking at a friends blog I saw this adorable card. The card was so cute that I wanted to make one that would be similar. If you take a look at Paula’s blog you will see all of her amazing cards. The Tilda image that she used was one I didn’t have (had the mini) so off the computer I went in search of Scarecrow Tilda.
Isn’t she adorable and to think I really didn’t care for her when she first came out – silly me. I’m not in to Halloween but I do love autumn and all the beautiful colors.
I used several different punches for the leaves then got out my stylist and went to work making the veins in each leaf. I then went to my Marianne dies and found these acorns. Once they were cut out I used my Copic markers and colored the tops darker.
I had just bought this new Cheery Lynn die and just had to use it. It cuts out beautiful but on the brown paper it just didn’t show up like I wanted it to. I decided to cut it out again, then I used the cut outs and glued them in the open spaces (couldn’t find the first ones I cut out). Once that was done I was happy with the look.
This picture doesn’t show up very good, just couldn’t get the light right. I was in search of some fall paper and couldn’t find any in the papers I had so I went to Nitwit papers and found this paper. I then added some larger leaves from Marianne dies to finish it off. I then realize I didn’t have any kind of sentiment, when I found this little Happy Autumn one I stamped it and tucked it behind the Tilda image. Now it’s finished.
I doesn’t compare to Paula’s but I’m happy with it.
Thanks for stopping by I don’t have many followers so the few comments I get are very precious to me. Hope the rest of your weekend is great.
