Acorn Fairy

 Hi Everyone, an Autumn card today, which I made with freebies from Create with TLC, Paulette is very generous with her images there are also many available to buy.

The Acorn Fairy was a freebie from last week, the ready coloured print background (acorns and leaves) "Autumn Colours in Nature" was from last year. It was lovely to be able to combine the two images. I  designed the card and coloured the fairy in PS, 3D'd the Fairy image, added lots of glitter, 3D gloss for the acorns in the image, I used Papermania punches for the leaves and coloured them with my Spectrum Noirs. I added the leaves to the left side of the card so that they would mix with the falling leaves on the paper.

This is one of those cards I am thrilled with, so much so, I have put it into a box frame for my craft room, especially for the Autumn Season. The photo taken in the evening sun, even has an Autumn cast to it. The framed photo was taken in a North room so in a way the colour is more realistic.

I went for a walk the other morning in this Indian Summer we have been having and decided to take a few early Autumn images.

Super cute card - love that you framed it Faith - definitely worth a frame. Your photos of the countryside are so pretty. Making me a little homesick as we are going through a storm right now.

I don't know which is more gorgeous, Faith, your card or your photographs. I love the darling fairy and have to agree with the idea of framing it for your craft room! The photograph of those acorns is really marvelous. Wish I could share some of those chestnuts. :-D
