New Challenge #110 at Glitter N Sparkle

Yes its that time of week again.
And we have had a lovely early 
Birthday Party this weekend 
for my youngest Step-Daughter.
Its been great fun and now 
she wants to go shopping 
and spend all her money.

I fell in love with this weeks image 
as my Partner Proposed to me
on my Parents Narrow Boat,
so I thought I would base it on 

The Theme at 
Autumn Colours

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Ikes Art who are offering 
3 Images from their store.
The Stamping Chef who are offering
3 Images from their store

Fred She Said who are offering
a $10 Gift Certificate for their store.

My Project for this
week is:-

Narrow Boat Digi Stamp
from Ikes Art
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I used an A4 sheet of
Pumpkin Orange Card
which I Hand-cut and Folded
to make a Tri-fold Step Card
(2cm - 4cm - 8cm).

Next I using Mustard Card
I cut out a 12.5cm Square,
a 6 x 12cm Rectangle,
two 3.5 x 13cm Side Panels and
a 1.5 x 12am Bottom Strip.

On to the Square and the 
Side Panels I backed some 
Pumpkin Leaf Paper
Then I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
and coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                         Boat -         Yellow
                                            Cool Grey 2
                                            Cool Grey 4
                                            Cool Grey 5
                         Man -           Ivory (Skin)
                                            Cyan (Jumper)
                                            Black (Hat)
                         Fence -        Caramel
                         Water -       Apple
                                            Pastel Green                                                       Path -         Sandstone
                                           Cool Grey 2
                                           Ice Grey 4
                         Trees -       Pear Green
                         Leaves -     Mustard
                                           Pear Green
Once finished I cut it and backed it on to the
Rectangle piece of Mustard Card.
Then placed it in the middle of the Square,
and attached this to the Back fold of my 
Base Card.

For My Sentiment I used the 
Bottom Strip of Mustard Card and 
I used 'Remember This Day' and 
the Maple Leaf
Clear Stamps
(Holiday Cheer - Stampin'Up!),
with Tuxedo Black Ink

Using up Scraps of 
Yellow Card, Mustard Card,
and Rust Card
(all stash)
I Die-Cut out Leaves

To finish off my Card,
I added Bronze Flatback Gems
to the Side Panels. 
On the Windows of the Narrow Boat,
the Chimney, the Vents and the Steering Handle
I used Holographic Gold Glitter.
and on the Sentiment and its Leaves 
I used Copper Penny Glitter
(all Glitter from Glitter Magic).
