Mushroom and Ladybird

Hello, everyone.  I wanted to play along in the September Challenge at Just Some Lines - the theme is Autumn or Back to School, and you must use an image from Just Some Lines.  I went with the Autumn theme and chose the image Mushroom and Ladybird, which I believe was a freebie at some point (thank you).  Here's the card I made.


I followed the sketch at Your Next Stamp (shown below) and used some freebie digi paper from Far Far Hill (thank you).  I started with a white card base, which I covered with digi paper and then added two panels of coordinating digi paper.  I coloured Mushroom and Ladybird with pencils and mounted on kraft and brown cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in black on a green scrap and used my small square punch to make it into a banner.  Lastly, I added some flowers, a die-cut leaf vine, and a leaf.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stampJust Some Lines 
  • Digi papers:   Far Far Hill
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Stampin' Up)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Die:  Sizzix Sizzlits - Flowers Branches and Leaves Set
  • Punch:  Square for banner end (Marvy Uchida)
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Flowers, leaf:  Dollar store
