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.
Hugs xx

Happy Fummer, LOVE it! I love the fall, as much as I miss the summer, we didn't really have one this yr, so let's gear up for fall, right??

Glad you found some pencil crayons. When we saw you on Friday, you were on a mission and looks like it pd off. Your card is stunning! Great job and what a cute image.

Ahhh, you discovered Pointer's did you? They have amazing paper there! Not a ton of stamps, but tons of paper.
