Fabulous Phantasi

Good morning, I have another autumnal card to share with you today. I made this for our new challenge starting today at Fab 'n' Funky...our  host this week is the very talented Pat K and she has chosen the lovely theme of Autumn (Fall) colours. Our sponsor for this challenge is Digistamps4Joy, with a lovely prize for the lucky winner.
I coloured this amazing image, Phantasi 7, with my copics. I printed the image quite large so kept my design very simple , just adding a stamped sentiment and a frame. The frame is hand cut from cardstock, coloured with distress inks then stamped with various leaf stamps in shades of brown yellow, green and rust. I then embossed it using UTEE so it has lovely shiny finish. I SO enjoyed making this card!
My teamies have made some wonderful cards to inspire you this week so please pop over here to take a look. It would be great if you join the fun this week and play along!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
Have a lovely day

Wow, wow, WOW!! Chris, this is such a stunning image. I've seen it coloured up before, but not quite with such stunning Autumnal tones. I LOVE what you've done with this image. Perfect creation for this challenge. Beautiful sentiment and oh so perfect backing paper!! Spectacular hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo

Hehe, just noticed the UTEE when I popped up the pic. I really have to read the blogpost first. I'm so backwards, I often comment and then go back and read the post in depth, such a na-na!! So I missed at first that the 'paper' was glossy, I saw this when I popped up the picture bigger (clearly needing glasses now!!) but then I realised, that it wasn't paper at all, but a frame you had stamped to achieve those beautiful Autumnal tones. Un-freakin'-believable! Stunning creation hun and this has me in total awe of you!! xoxo

Pat K said...

Hi, Chris! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog this morning. Slowly but surely, I'll be back LOL WHAT AN INCREDIBLY GORGEOUS IMAGE! Your coloring is beyond imaginative and beautifully shaded! Love the way you've done her hair and luminous eyes! I especially like that some of her "hair" is left white intentionally - such drama - and shows off the intensity of your background! Loveliness! hugs, de
