Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Wednesday 9 September 2015

It is time for me to show you my Inspiration Post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "the colours of Fall" eg yellow, orange, green and brown.  Your card/creation doesn't have to be Fall/Halloween related.  You just need to use the colours mentioned.
I decided to use the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Walk Unafraid".  I coloured the image in with my Promarkers.  I used some chalks for the moon and sky and then used a Brown Tint Pan pastel around the edge of the image.  I then went over the whole thing with my Coarse Medium Pan Pastel to add some sparkle and to give a bit of a muted appearance to it.

For the background I have used a piece of watercolour card, splodged on Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters and Brushed Corduroy distress inks and then spritzed with water and allowed to dry.  I used a leaf stamp from IndigoBlu and Sheena Douglass and stamped with the same inks all around the edge of the card.  I used some of the leftover watercolour card and die-cut various leaf shapes and inked with Shabby Shutters distress ink around the outside.  I have used a Crafter's Companion Textures distress embossing folder and highlighted the embossing with my Shabby Shutters distress ink.

I have finished the card off with some ribbon, leaves and some gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
