LDRS Creative –Winds Are Blowing!


Hello everyone! How are things?

I am posting on the LDRS CREATIVE INSPIRATION BLOG today using some of the fabulous autumnal themed products now available in THE STORE.


This gorgeous image can be found in the WINDS ARE BLOWING stamp set and I coloured her with Copics. 


I cut some leaves from the AUTUMN BREEZE die set using some red card and what must be the most reflective copper card on the planet!! Not the best thing to try to photograph I have to say!


Finally I stamped a sentiment from the MAGIC OF FALL SET onto a piece of vellum and ripped the edges.  I always seem to be ripping the edges of my sentiments just lately obviously a PHRASE I’m going through….…..I’ll get my coat. 


Ingredients:

Oh my, the new goodies and just gorgeous and I have a step-by-step tutorial of my card today.  Grab a cuppa as it’s photo heavy!


I began by cutting a piece of glitter card and a piece of paper from the stunning ARCTIC SNOWFALL 6x6 PAPER PACK to fit my card blank. 


I stamped out images from the ARCTIC SNOWFALL STAMP SET and also the TREE LINE & MOUNTAINS using my RAVEN HYBRID INK PAD onto ULTIMATE GRAPHIC paper.

I coloured with my Copics then fussy cut everything (I stamped two of the hats and cut off the striped band to be the 'neck' of my scarf ).

I distressed and inked the edges of my matting layers, and then stuck them to my card. I added foam tape to the back of my mountains and trees and also added some ripped pearl card to give me a snowy ground. I graduated the depth of the foam tape to create the dimension I wanted.

After 10 minutes of taking the backs off the foam tape (!) I layered everything up.


I 'dressed' my lovely fox in his teeny hat, scarf and boots using a glue pen to minimise the mess (unusual for me as I revel in mess!!).

I added my fox and owls and stamped one of the sentiments on another piece of ripped pearl card and added it to the bottom. I also stamped and coloured the heart three times and added it to what I felt was an 'empty space'.

And voila! A touch of Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops and it's done!
