Whiff Of Joy Challenge #48 Heather's Sketch/ Papertake Weekly Challenge Faking It
Well I've finally gotten around to finding time to color one of my new Whiff Of Joy fall images. I just love her. She's harvesting the grapes, hopefully to make me some wine for the winter. LOL. I have been on a mission for the past few months to find another set of pencil crayons that had some bolder colors. I sampled 3 over the last few days and the winner of the best pencil crayon that moves with mineral spirits was Derwent Color Soft pencil crayons. I love the way they move with the spirits and the color range is very different then my Lyra's. They are a good compliment to my Lyra's. So here's my first card done with them. I also in my travels managed to find my little nook in the wall store called Pointers that was full of tons of new fall papers, and of course I had to have one of every one. This set is called October Afternoon. So for the Whiff Of Joy Challenge it was to follow a sketch by Heather. What a great sketch, but tons of layers. I also made this card to go into the Papertake Weekly Challenge which was to create a card with lots of Fake embellishments on it. I added Faux stitching on my card, and cut out Faux flowers from my October Afternoon paper, and of course punched out Faux leaves. I'm still holding onto Summer, but I am loving my fall stamps. Happy Fummer. There's a compromise.
