Wonderful new cards made by Jayne Shasky images

This is a stunning image with an Autumnal feel from the latest CD Rom by Joanna Sheen.  From the Heart of the Garden contains stunning imagery from the artist Jayne Shasky and will give any crafter stunning material to make cards such as the Easel Card you see to the left.  This was made using an A4 Card Blank, I also used Coordinations card stock in shades of green from the Nostalgia block, Flourish gold paper from HOTP and the stunning leaf backing paper from the CD Rom.

I initially covered the card using olive green cardstock layered on to the base card, the edges shaped with the Scallop We R Memory Keepers punch.  I then distressed the HOTP gold embossed flourish paper with Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold and Crushed Olive distress inks before cutting the two matts required.  I placed the first matt of flourish paper on flat placed a further olive card stock layer again edged by the scallop punch, and attached the Autumn leave backing paper printed from the CD Rom on this.  I then added a slightly darker olive matt to this card using pinflair glue gel for dimension and two scallop edged flourish panels to the left and right hand sides.

I then took the image and cut a gold mirri board mount which again was stuck on using some dimension from the pinflair glue gel.  The image then had the border masked off accept for the leaves and sprayed with irridescent spray & sparkle, this was mounted on to complete the card front and a small bronze ribbon embellishment with a bell added.

As you can see from the photo above for the easel stopper I used an Artemio loop punch to create a border in the olive card stock, I then placed a central strip of the autumn leave backing paper bordered by bronze metallic pen.  The two bird images were taken from the same image sheet printed off and layered on gold mirri board.  The sentiment was created on the computer and also mounted on mirri board.  The ribbon behind the easel was in fact ruched by hand using extra strong tape. 

I hope you like this card.
