Today's challenge at Pattie's Creations is to use Autumn Colors in your image. When I think of autumn colors, I automatically think of oranges, yellows, and reds, so when I was browsing Pattie's Etsy shop, I knew the Kokopelli Sun would be a great image to use showcase those colors.
I printed the image twice so I could fussy cut the Kokopelli person and adhere him on top of the main image. I didn't add adhesive to his "hair", so it would give a touch more dimension to that part of the image. The zig zag of his clothing and his horn were heat embossed using Sparkle N Sprinkle's Poolside embossing powder.
The entire image was colored with Copic markers and I added some white highlights with some Copic opaque white paint. The first yellow panel was dry embossed using the Spellbinders "Valor" embossing folder and the mat behind the image was die cut using a Spellbinders die (Large Octagon). All of the edges are distressed using Distress Inks and the Distressed Embossing technique was added to the card base edges, using Mustard Seed and Clear embossing powder.
A few gems on the corners and a another bit of blue (in the form of ribbon) are the finishing touches. Be sure to visit the Pattie's Creations Design Challenge to see what the rest of the team has created for you.
