An autumn Scene

Hello, crafting friends!

Welcome to another fun challenge at Addicted to CAS! Fran has chosen a great theme to inspire you this fortnight:


What is it about the word autumn that gets you feeling creative? I was inspired by the beautiful country walks my dog and I go on and the displays of colour that Mother Nature puts on for us at this time of year.


I masked off margins to the left and right of a thick card base and stamped the trees and hills image from Clearly Besotted's Scene It More using a neutral ink. I removed the masks before colouring the scene because I wanted a loose edge. 


I brought out my autumnal coloured inks and water, and scribbled in some colour using a paint brush. When it was dry I fill in a sky with coloured pencils. And then I brought out a black fineliner and added detail with it, giving the impression of a pen and ink painting. I wanted my sentiment to look handwritten and I chose this one from Sugar Pea's Beautiful Books.

So now it's your turn! Do hop over to the Addicted to CAS challenge site to see all the fabulous inspiration from the team, and you'll fins the Linky Tool at the bottom of the post so that you can link up your own creation. I can't wait to see what you make!

CHALLENGES
I'm linking this card yup at Happy Little Stampers Watercolour challenge where Anything Watercolouring Goes; I've used the colour inspiration at Colour My Heart Color Dare 463 so I'm playing along there; Allsorts have an Anything Goes challenge with the option of Nature so I'm joining in there too; and at Watercooler Wednesday where Heidi is hosting the All Things Masculine challenge.


AND IN OTHER NEWS
It was Eva's 7th birthday yesterday and she couldn't have picked a more beautiful day for it! We did all her favourite things - meeting up with friends on the fields in the morning for a puppy party, going swimming in the river in the afternoon, eating some very interesting snacks, and going shopping for a new toy!


Here she is having a well-deserved lie down with her new teddy! She used to love these squeaky Kong teddies when she was a pup. They contain rope which fascinated her and she would spend ages pulling the toy apart to get to the rope. Now that she's a Grown Up Lady Dog, she's more interested in carrying it around!

Sending hugs,

  20. Belated birthday greetings for Eva, what a beauty she is too I can just imagine the colour she gets after a walk in the woods and a swim in the river. A sensational card really frameworthy. The masking works so well and makes for a gorgeous CAS card and the sentiment is perfect.

  23. Hello, Vicky! I think I'm supposed to be commenting on your card (which is beautiful, by the way) but I'm so drawn to Eva's photo! Her beautiful coloring plus the autumn-colored squeaky toy is perfect for the season. I really miss my Sweet Sara so always enjoy seeing the photos of others' fur babies. xoxo Fran
