Falling leaves at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog

Hi there,  its Thursday so that means its time for a new challenge from our very own Rainbow Lady Cynthia and this week the theme is 'Falling Leaves'. We have a fab prize up for grabs too,  so make sure you pop over and check out what Cynthia has up her sleeve (well i don't think it would fit up her sleeve but you know what i mean lol)

Apologies for the terrible photo, we don't seem to have seen any daylight here in my little corner of the UK for ages as its been so cloudy and miserable. My camera has really bleached the image out but you can see her a little better in this one hopefully

The bp is from one of my file of Artylicious printed papers, I think its from Essence of Nature but I can't check as I have a cd stuck in my computer  and I can't get it out! I really need to get rid of these gremlins lol. The image is 'Katie' by Elaine Cox from Sweet Pea Stamps, she's coloured with promarkers and derwent pencils. I've added a leafy cuttlebugged panel of black card highlighted with green mica powder, a big black bow and a handmade flower. The flower is made from Studio 490 clearly for art modelling film. I got a sample pack of this from Chocolate Baroque and I love it, its so much fun and if you mess up, you just heat it up and try again. I've added lime seed beads for the centre and as a finishing touch i've added some gorgeous green glittery leaves from Chocolate Baroque.

I'm entering this card into this months 'Anything goes' challenge over at In a Sweet Pea Dream .
Thanks for calling by today, don't forget to check out the fab prize on offer at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog and of course the fab inspiration from my lovely teamies

  2. Gorgeous card, the main image is beautiful. Yvonne x

  3. WOW this is amazing I love the colours you have used they are super and that image is so pretty, hope all is well, Hazelxo

  4. I love the way you have given her green eyes & that flower is quite stunning. Your green leaf embellishments accent both the leaves decorating her hair in the image & the shape of her ear beautifully. As for your shading of her hair - well - just terrific.

    Love your black & green with browns.

  5. Claire, your falling leaves card is beautiful. I love how you've colored it. Too bad about the gremlins in your computer. That is my fear every time I insert a CD - that it won't come back out.

  6. Fantastic, love how you've colored the image.

  7. Bleached out camera or not you have made her look mesmerising with those eyes. Adorable.

    Can't stop laughing about the CD stuck in the computer, in fact I haver tears running down my face.

    Hugs Shirley x x
