October's almost there...

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend. I have been a bit "down" lately and haven't even had the time or/and energy to go blogging or to make cards. But I decided that was enough and I had to do something about it and eventually made a card to cheer myself up:-)... I am going to enter it into:
7 Kids College Fund - #4 Sketch + Fall theme
Copic Creations - #35 Shading on and around images (and great tutorials there!)
Creative Card Crew - Autumn or Fall
Stamp Something - Something with Fall colours
A Spoonfull of Sugar - #122 - Anything Goes

Bonsoir, une carte enfin pour essayer de me remonter le moral, pas merveilleux ces derniers temps... 

The longest part was the shading around the image... I followed Mary's fabulous tutorial (but not with grey:-)) and stamped my image twice. I coloured one and cut it out. I used the other image to do the shading first with Copics, then with two different Distress Inks, then I pasted my coloured image on the other one... I should have used 3D foam, but wanted thin foam and couldn't find any:-(...

Pour les ombres autour de l'image, j'ai utilisé un super tutoriel de Mary, que vous pouvez voir ICI.

Stamps: Pumpkin CC Designs - the pumpkins on the left are by Kraftin' Kimmie
Copics: BV0000, 00, 01, 02, E000, 00, 25, 31, 50, Y17, YG11, 13, 17, 63, 67, YR04, 07, 12 
Distress Inks: Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord
DPs: Echo Park and BoBunny
Sentiment: from my Echo Park sheet
Craftworks Card candy
Dies: Shapeabilities (Flourish Accents)

And a last view...

That's all for now... Enjoy the rest of your weekend and speak to you soon! 
Bon week-end et à bientôt j'espère! Bisous,
Delphine xx
