Autumn Nymph

Hello all, hope you had a good weekend especially all the Mum's out there.
I heard from all four of my children so I was a happy bunny :)

This card is totally out of season, but I bought the digi stamp from Heather Valentin's store from the retired section and had to have a go straight away.

The image is coloured with watercolour pencils and then brushed out with water, I left the nymph very pale as she would spend most of her time in the woodland. I gave her bright blue eyes as a complimentary color to the warm shades of orange and brown.

The image was then framed with a double mat. The bright orange background card was covered with punched leaves which are made from vellum, embossed and inked. The image was added and then a few extra leaves added to the top of the frame matching the almost hidden leaves at the top of the image.
