The clocks have gone back here in the UK and the nights are definitely closing in. There have been sharp frosts these past few days so winter is only just around the corner.
Over at ATSM it's time for another challenge, this week it's -
AG is always easy to enter and difficult to decide what to do for the DT.
Anyway this what I came up with.
I was at a Copic colouring class over the weekend with the lovely Faye Wynn-Jones. She's the Copic ambassador for Europe and was teaching us how to colour properly with Copics.
We were discussing other ways you could use your Copics and reinkers, so I thought I would have another go at this layout but using stronger autumnal colours. Also the challenge over at LIM is to show dimension and what better than layered die cuts!
I cut a couple of flowers and a few leaves from the Altenew Rose Flurries die set from off white card and then used my Copics to colour each layer. I used Y38, YR18, YR15 and YR16 for the large bloom, Y38, Y17,Y15 and Y11 for the small bud, the leaves were E39 and E29, I think!
I've found this the best way to get the subtle tonal changes required, as despite having tons of card in every single colour, I never have the right range of colours!
After layering up the blooms I popped them to one side and added some flicks of colour, diluted DI to the top right of the card base, made from the same card as the diecuts.
My sentiment strip was stamped in white on dark brown using part of a sentiment from Amazing You from Altenew and cut with a MFT banner die. Hope the Thank You sentiment counts as kindness for the AAA challenge!
OK, that's it from me but there's more inspiration from the DT over at the ATSM blog.
