Autumn Colours at Wild Orchid Crafts

Well this card was a struggle.  Not only was I battling another of those wretched migraines, I really struggled with this card.  I am not a fan of autumn in any shape or form including the colours – too drab and dreary for me. I’m afraid hence the zing of orange.  Wild Orchid Challenge has a challenge of Autumn Colours this week,.

I have used another Saturated Canary image – Ava.  I can’t help myself I love these images so much.  The paper is Glitz French Kiss and the sentiment was done using Hampton Art alphabet stamps. 

The fabulous die that I have used behind the image is another of those Joy! Crafts dies by Noor! Design.  OMW isn’t is stunning!  The die is called Square Frame and it’s now up for preorder here

I used a mix of copics and promarkers to colour the image and added pencils for extra depth,

And of course my embellies are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used Curly wild rose, chrysanthemum, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, Calla Lilies, pearls and organza rose trim

Have a fab week

  10. I think orange is perfect for autumn and your card is gorgeous. I love the colours of autumn I just hate that it heralds colder weather...lol. Have you tried Sumatritan for your Migraines? I use it and find it a God send.

  42. You don't like autumn!!!??? Oh my, I've never heard anyone say that! It's the repreive after summer, like the spring is after winter. I absolutel LOVE autumn, and the colors, too!!! They are warm, cozy, inviting, and give way to the awesome smells of autumn and all the wonderful baking! Well, your card sure does reflect Autumns Beauty. And I agree, Krista's images are so addicting--can't wait for more releases!!! I feel your pain with your headaches--I get them also. Is it an age thing? I never used to have them before I turned 50. I took a sinus pill this morning and it seemed to tone my head down some. Try getting a full body massage--might feel good all over... Hugs
