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.
