Saturday Inspiration card for Morgan's Artworld

I have followed the theme of the challenge this time for the Saturday card..It is to use Craft card..For this card I used a Sheena Douglas Wood Grain embossing folder and ran the craftcard through the Ebosser.I then decided to use the reverse of the folder I prefered the markings on that side..Then useing Tim Holtz Rusty Hing,Dark Brown and Mowed Lawn ink pads to colour the surface of the craft card..I only added a small amount of the green ,but you must remember when doing wood there is moss on trees and more than just brown.I am well impressed how it came out..I then mounted it onto a fresh piece of craft card to support it and also to straighten it out..I also used a heavier weight glue for this too as I did not want it to be wavy,so  used Cosmic Shimmer..I am not to keen on using it on thinner papers it seems to leave a bit of a ridge,but on this brilliant.
The image is coloured onto Neenah card using Polychromos Pencils..For this one I have tried a slightly new technique,and done a lot of blending with just the pencils..Also I have done a lot more work on the skin,adding more colours,shadows and am really quite pleased with how she turned out too ,Her colouring is much more realistic..However not too sure that this would look so good on the more cartoon characters I do for other teams,but I felt this one needed more work. Hope you like the difference ..The wood grain and the colours I chose has given it a beautiful Autumnal feel..,it was good fun going outside the box,both with the background and with her too..after all it's what crafting is all about learning new things and growing in our own skills,but most of all loving what you do..So have fun ..Thanks for popping by :)xx

The image I have used is from
