Well good morning.
This is the last of my posts for my GD spot at JUGS, it's sad in a way because I've had the best of welcomes from the team, so thank you all for your lovely comments over the last few weeks.
So to get down to it, here is my final card.
It's based on the photo on this week's cue card.
Just over a week ago there was very little leaf colour in the hedgerows, just oodles of haws, cherry plums and crab apples but the other morning the field maples had a definite autumnal colour to their leaves. The horse chestnuts down the road have lost most of their leaves but the conkers are still holding firm and the oaks are shedding a few acorns here and there, I thought that with all the heat and lack of rain that autumn would be early but it seems not.
I've used Leaf Fragments dies from Tim Holtz and Sizzix, I was bought these for Christmas a couple of years ago and this is their first outing! I rummaged in my bits box for some gelli plate panels to use but found a couple of textured ones with a hint of glitter that I made at some time ago, not exactly sure what I used, it was probably something to do with those girls at CAS Mix up!! There's definitely some Brusho and glitter and some sort of paste, anyway one of the pieces was just right to cut out a few leaves. I added some DI in Vintage Photo to one side and some Mustard Seed DI to the other before adding them to my panel from the bits box, to which I had added some plasterboard scrim tape for texture, left over from our build, it's lovely stuff and adheres with out glue! The finished panel was then added to an A6 base card with foam tape and the sentiment from Altenew added.
So where will the picture cue card take you? The GD have some fabulous example to inspire you over on the JUGS site, so why not join in?
