Wow another fantastic idea for this weeks Challenge card, and Ive used this gorgeous one by Mo Manning of a young lad lounging after sweeping up a load of leaves. I love the sound of them crunching when walking through the leaves in the Autumn, Im so lucky as I live in the Royal Forest of Dean and we of course have loads of the most gorgeous trees and at the moment they are changing in colours and showing themselves in all their splender. By trying to copy this isnt the most easiest of things to do, but I hope that Ive gone someway to doing so.
I then used a sepia inkpad to distress the edges, and then mounted it onto a piece of orange card. The sentiment is one of the Just-Rite stamps, you now can get them over here from Stampeezee. After I cut it out with my oval nestabilitie die and used a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 8"x 8" white card and for the first layer I have used a piece of green pearlescent card and one of four papers that I bought from Nitwit Downloads, these are from the Not Far to Fall collection. The second and third layers are punched along all edges with a EK Success tree border punch, these were layered up on top of the base layer. For the fourth layer I have used a piece of a paler orange pearlescent card and a fourth paper around which I have positioned a piece of ribbon that has loads of leaves on.
My coloured image has then been positioned on top of these layers with the sentiment which was stuck to the bottom right hand side. To finish of I have used several different sizes of buttons, these are all a maple leaf form and were positioned in all different corners.
