Sweet Pea Stamps - Variations Week - November 2013

For Variations Week over at Sweet Pea Stamps for November 2013 the Design Team are all using the Regan Kubecek image called "Thanksgiving Harvest".  It is available as a digital stamp and a single rubber stamp.
 I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and some Graph’it pens (as I haven’t got a mix of all colours get for Graph’it pens).  I used a chalk ink pad around the image.
I’ve tried to take the photograph at an upwards angle to show that I have decoupaged the image up (It was the only way I could get it to show).  Decoupage was the first area I tried in cardmaking when I first started and I still like it and enjoy doing this technique with stamped images.  Yes I know it means colouring the edges of the bottom image as extra (because as the middle won’t show you don’t need to do that bit) but I think it is worth it.

I have then used a Tim Holtz leaf die and cut three different shaped leaves out of a book.  I then used Tim Holtz’s Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Crushed Olive distress inks and my Inkylicious brushes to colour the leaves.  The backing papers are from my stash.  I have finished the card off with an array of buttons and some twine.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
