Truly Scrumptious #18 - Mina's sketch

Edited:
There's been something 'niggling' me about this card but I couldn't for the life in me think what it was - I had an Eureka moment this morning - I had also intended to enter it for the Pink Elephant challenge.


We have a fabulous sketch be the lovely talented Mina at Truly Scrumptious  this and the theme for this week is Autumn.







We are delighted to welcome Stampattack as our sponsor this week. This is what Carol has to say about her company: "Stampattack was born 6 years ago with the aim of manufacturing our own rubber stamps. I worked on sourcing designs that were different and unique to the British market. A good friend of mine has hand drawn some lovely designs under the name of JoZart Designs and these have proved to be real winners."


I had to juggle around with the sketch a little as this image is so huge, but having spent ages colouring it I wasn't going to abandon it and do another.
 This was one of those cards that just did not want to be photographed - I know the light is poor but even with daylight bulbs it wasn't playing the game - I shall try again this morning in daylight.
This image (Autumn Wardrobe) is coloured with Copics and the papers are all from Basic Grey's Indian Summer range. The three panels/band (whatever you want to call them) are cardstock stickers, also from the Indian Summer range. I used leaves from the local supermarked and the sentiment is from Magnolia's Autum collection 2008.

This certainly looks as if it took ages. The colouring is superb. Those mice are adorable. Our supermarket doesn't even sell double sided tape let alone wonderful leaves.

Oh Heather you did such a beautiful job with mina's sketch..wow-you added so many beautiful details! What a stunning card!
I'm going to try and do a tutorial for my airbrush system...it really wasn't that expensive! I found a very small and cheap air compressor on ebay-it's not the best quality but I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars!!
