I started with stamping and copic colouring the oval leaf image diagonally to make my background. I used autumn reds, greens, browns and yellows. Instantly the background looks rich and beautiful. I then trimmed the top of this panel at an angle. I also stamped the quote from the stamp set towards the bottom of the panel using brown ink. Then also brushed the leaves heavily with Wink of Stella shimmer pen.
To complement the colours on the stamped images, I used Doodlebug’s Kraft in Color pattern papers. I added some pattern papers at an angle on the top of the card base. Then I adhered the stamped panel.
To balance, I added two coloured diecut leaves from the stamp set over a fish tail banner on the top left and layered stamped sentiment banner towards the bottom right. Finally I added some yellow enamel dots and a yellow bow using Doodlebug’s yellow backer’s twine to finish the card.
I am pretty pleased with my card especially the rich colours. Hope you like it too.
