Happy Sunday to everyone. The weather here has really changed and Autumn has arrived. I love this time of year - as long as its not to cold. The colours of Autumn are wonderful and I am now seriously thinking about Christmas.
This fabulous sweet image from Mo Manning is called Ragged Angel and I have coloured and glittered the image and mounted this on an easel card and used distressing inks, lace and pearls, ribbon and sparkle. I have experimented with paper weaving as I have never used this technique before and have produced two patchwork paper heart pockets and a patchwork label with matching topper.
I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges.
A closer view of the front of the card. The image is mounted as a circular die cut and I have used a die cut circular frame distressed with vintage inks from Tim Holtz. Promarker and Fleximarker pens have been used to colour and shade the image. I have used glitter for the wings and details and Snow Marker Pen for definition. The snowflakes are die cuts which I have glittered and added pearls form Kaisercraft. The papers are three 12 x 12 designer sheets from my stash. I created the patchwork heart using a tutorial from Stamp ARTic The hearts are little pockets and the pocket on the front of the card contains a matching patchwork label. I have used lace to decorate the heart pocket on the front of the card.

A closer view of the patchwork label. I have used a lovely rich red ribbon from my stash and a glittered die cut star to decorate. There is plain circle greeting panel on the back of the label for recording a message.
The card and label
A closer view of the card when closed, this is a 6" x 6" card. I hope you like this card, please let me know what you think. I am trying to use techniques which are new to me with most of the cards that I make. There is a lot of work in this card but I really enjoyed making this. I think I will be making more paper patchwork/weaving projects as I think it looks so good.
Thank you for reading this post. Warm weekend wishes to all.
