Papertake Weekly Challenge 'Autumn haze' and Spiral Whisper Sketch Challenge




Okay here we go .... Firstly, I enjoyed making this card as the image was to hand, and Luke's grin seems to say what the sentiment is. The taupe coloured base card is from own stash from ages ago, I thought It would fit perfectly with the other autumn colours, The terracota coloured paper is from own box, speckled a bit, (not sure what kind it is but it's not sugar paper that you would use for kiddies work) .I actually bought a mixture of offcuts in boxes from a shop in town until it shut down. The print paper is from Shabby Princess (free downloads).

This card would fit into a 14cm x 14cm envelope. So my base card measures 13.5 x 13.5 cm . The terractoa paper is 12 x 12cm, then cut corner to corner. I 've accented around with a brown gel pen and a black italic pen and waterproof fine liner pen. Hand cut with decorative scissors around image of Luke wearing hoody which was kindly sent by Karen
watercoloured him,
raised on foam pads, button from own stash and thread saved from my husbands business, and top right a sticker sentiment from a candy also raised a little. Finished!!!
Hope you like :)
