Autumn Leaves For AYSI...
Falling For You...

Retro Rubber Challenge #75...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge!  It’s a color inspiration and the challenge image provides a lot of color choices!


I started with this image from Clearly Gina K Always Autumn from 2014.  I used my colored pencils before adding the sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple Thanksgiving (2014). rrcb 75 1 (640x545)

Using the sketch from Paper Craft Crew, I added some white jute ribbon and a couple of pieces of cardstock – early espresso and crushed curry.  The early espresso with the chevron cut outs was one of the scraps that I found that went perfectly with the sketch and color challenge. rrcb 75 2 (640x414)

I layered everything together and then added a few dots and pearls.

Jane, love every single thing about this card, the image is beautiful and the texture you added with the jute ribbon and those sweet enamel dots really brings it to life.

Jane, I love your card, I wish I was brave enough to use a piece of Jute the way you have done. Your colouring is amazing! Clairex

Jan Clothier

Your colouring is superb. The swag of jute ribbon is gorgeous and adds a touch of glamour and the bits of cardstock bring all the elements together. Lovely work, Jane.

Such great texture and coloring. Love how the scrap from the table added in a detail from the sketch you were using!
