Happy Autumn!

Hello Friends! Today I am sharing the card I created for the Thursday Challenge at Meljen's Designs...SURPRISE! LOL! I bet you're not surprised at all.  What can I say, I really enjoy coloring these images. This time it was a Sketch Challenge.

I chose the gorgeous Fall Wreath for my card. The image is printed on my favorite Cryogen White Iridescent card stock and colored with Copics. Then I tried the "out-of-bounds" technique with my circle Nestabilities, right around the little crow's tail. Fun technique, I will definitely be using it again!

Click to enlarge.
I don't know why my images are coming out so blurry! It's so frustrating! They don't look like this until I post them in Blogger. My original photo is crystal clear. Anyway...click on the image and it will appear clearer for you. This card is so sparkly in real life...not only does the back ground paper have glitter on it, but I also accented the ribbon on the wreath with a glitter pen.

Golly, Barb, this is gorgeous! I'm not sure how to do the technique you did, but it sure looks great. Love the colors.

I have tried to color that cupcake I told you about, but life keeps getting in the way of me really working on it. Darn. Hopefully before Halloween I will be able to finish coloring it. LOL

Awesome fall card! I love how you colored the wreath and way to go on using the out of the box technique. That's something I've not tried yet.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment on my Meljen's card!
