Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 141 - Leaf It In

Hello Everyone

How are you all?  I hope you have all had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend with some sunshine (hopefully) at last.

Firstly I must apologise for not being around your blogs over the last week - home life has been a little hectic but I will be back to normal this weekend so thank you for all your lovely comments and continued support - you are all awesome!

So straight onto this weeks challenge over at Totally Gorjuss which is 'Leaf It In'.  Now I have to admit this did get the old little grey brain cells thinking for quite some time, but if you do need a little inspiration check out what the Totally Gorjuss DT girlies have created for you - they are such a talented bunch indeed.

This weeks sponsor is Heather's Hobbie Haven, so as usual, to be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in their store make sure you post your creation over on the Totally Gorjuss site and you're in.

Here is the card I have made for you:

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Mo Manning Kai (ain't he just so cute!)
Papers:  My Minds Eye - Fine & Dandy - Boy from Dies to Die For
Button Die:  Cheery Lynn Buttons # 2 from Dies to Die For

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30
Jacket:  E27 E25 E23 / YR18 YR14 YR12
Trousers:  E31 E30 E50 / E27 E25
Shoes:  E43 E42 E41 E40
Leaves:  BG99 BG95 BG93 / BG15 BG13 BG11 / E17 E15 / YR18 YR14 YR12 / YR24 YR23 YR21

I know I'm probably boring you all to death with this technique but I have outlined with image using my current favourite masking duly dabbed around with some Old Paper Distress Ink

The papers have been outlined in Walnut Stain Distress Ink

One more picture of the inside of the card:

And that's it.

I do hope you can come and join in with us and I look forward to catching up with all your blogs over the weekend.

Take care and be safe.
