Autumn Leaves

This card was created for the Totally Tilda Challenge.  This challenge is #1, it is a colour challenge and the colour is Chocolate.  I had to think for a while about making this card because I love to use lots of colours.  I decided on an Autumn card because I thought it was a good way of using lots of different shades of brown on a card, who knew there where so many shades of brown.  This card is a Tent Fold Card.

To create this card I used Stamps: Magnolia Standing Fall Tilda, Stitched Fall.  Cardstock: White hammered, brown.  Papers: DP Sizzix Little Sizzles Earth Tones (I used these to paper piece Tilda's clothes), Deja Views by C-Thru The Sharon Ann Collection.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo black.  Colouring: Copic markers Skin E000/E00/E11/R20.  Hair E29/E25/E31.  Basket E31/E34.  Shoes and gloves E34/E35.  Sakura gel pen Glaze 800.  Stardust 700.  Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Petite Ovals Large.  Cuttlebug embossing folder Divine Swirls.  Sizzix Extended Cuts Swirly.  Embellishments: Brown ribbon, gold jump rings.

Hints and Tips
When paper piecing I use small left over scraps of DP papers.  To use the small scraps sucessfully I ink up the stamp and place the small scrap on top of the area I want to stamp, then I press it down onto the stamp.
