Yes, it's that time again. We're kicking off another challenge over at Stempelküche challenge blog. In keeping with the season, our prompt for the next fortnight is "foliage", and this is my inspiration card for you:
Für diese Karte habe ich mich mächtig ins Zeug gelegt und allerlei verschiedene Kolorationsmedien aus dem Schrank geholt. Die süßen Stempelmotive von MFT habe ich mit Copics koloriert und die Blätter mit Distress Oxides gewischt. Für die Wolken im Hintergrund habe ich allerdings normale Distress Inks verwendet, damit der Farbauftrag etwas dezenter wird.
I did some heavy duty work coloring this card utilizing various coloring media. For the cute little autumn images by MFT I used Copics, and I turned to Distress Oxide Inks to sponge the leaves. For the clouds in the backgorund, however, I used standard Distress Inks to achieve a more subtle result.
If you now want to know what my DT mates Beate, Biggi, Birka and Jennifer have come up with to inspire you for this challenge quickly hop over to the Stempelküche challenge blog where they are sharing their wonderful creations.
Last but not least, thanks to everyone who offered their feedback - openly or privatly here and on my other social media channels - concernig my card photography. Basically, you all love both my old and my new style alike, only some of you prefer one over the other to a tiny degree. That's why I will test the new one out a bit more over the next few weeks to see if it indeed offers the expected benefits. Don't be surprised, though, when in between you still stuble across a few photos in my old style. I still have some cards to share I made a while ago and that were still shot in the old style. And I'm too lazy to redo all the images, that's why I will share them the way the are.
