A cornucopia of blessings

The image for this month’s progressive challenge at From the Heart stamps is a lovely cornucopia. A few months ago I would not even have considered colouring this image but practice has given me a bit of courage, so here it is!

Materials used:SAM_2328(watermarked)
From the Heart Stamps digi set – Cornucopia
Imagine That digi set – Subtle Harvest Kit
printer paper and card
stamping card
Copic pens
A5 white card blank

Method:
I printed out all the bits I needed for the topper, an extra image and two background papers from the Harvest Kit. I coloured both images and then cut my base image and sentiment to the size I wanted. I covered the front of the card blank with the leaves paper then matted my topper onto the purple paper before sticking it to the card front. Finally I fussy cut the main section of fruit and veg and the small bunch of grapes and pumpkin from the second image, shaped and attached them to the second image using gel glue.

As I am trying to build up a little stash of ATC’s I also made one with this image.

The marathon run of Harvest Services and suppers has now finished and all the apple pies have been eaten! I don’t do Halloween so the next big celebration will be Christmas. Whoa! Not already! Where has the year gone? I guess I should be thinking about getting the 200+ cards that we need on the go. Something quick and easy I think!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Pippa – you did a fantastic job of coloring on this pretty cornucopia..so congratulations on your skills there. Also love the way you’ve added the shaped 2nd layer of the veggies & the whole motif looks lovely against the crisp white background. The dark purple mat shows the main image off so beautifully and ties in the background pattern paper. Well done! TFS & have a good wkend.
