DeeDee's Digis - Autumn Harvest Basket

Hello, Happy Sunday. Hope the weekend has been nice for you so far. Today's scheduled post is another DeeDee's Digi card...so very easy to do cards with these cute images. This one has some mixed media 'schtuff' on it;  just shows that these well designed digis can work in so many versatile ways.

In case you've not had time to check this out, there's a super sale over at DeeDee's....if you like these designs, NOW is a good time to build your collection.
 
 
 
 
 
Autumn Harvest digi set (now just 69cents!) fussy cut the precolored digi, just a tiny bit of copic shading, some stylus shaping. Ready to pop on a card.
 
- Used a THoltz Harlequin stencil with Viva D├ęcor paste that has some gritty bits in it, (and not really easy to spread either, but not so thick as that glitter paste I used recently). Let that dry overnight.
 
- Blue background piece from a created background - think this was done with smooshing reinkers, Tsukineko paint, and had been cut with a S/B frame die. Didn't work for the project intended, so cut in half to use here.
 
- corrugated cardboard had been on the table, got oversprays, hmmm...looked ok when combined here (at least _I_ thought it did!). Just tried placing elements to see how things looked. Decided to cut some stitched small leaves, colored with copics, tucked under the digi basket...and done! A rather neutral card, but I think the blue background & the bright leaves perked it up a bit. Before the cold & snuffles arrived, had been trying to use up some bits of stuff.
 
The sentiment is from the same package chipboard used on yesterday's card. Colored with copics.
 
Thanks for stopping in this afternoon, and Big Hugs back to you. (I've been trying to be very careful to stay away from Mr. so he doesn't get contaminated. At first I wasn't sure if this stuff was some of my allergy problems, or just a cold. So far, it's just been a cold, and stayed in my head. So I'm very thankful for that).

Your card is lovely Mary. I really like the way you've used the corrugated cardboard as a background. The image is lovely and the little leaves work perfectly. I think it's fun using up stuff that is lying around on your table. Sorry to hear you not well at the moment. Hope you feel better soon. Barbxx

This harvest basket is lovely too Mary and I think the corrugated cardboard with the pretty blue ornate die cut piece behing goes really well as brown and that turquoise kind of blue are great together. I love the leaves tucked behind the basket too and fantastic texture with the Viva Decor paste used through a harlequin stencil. x
