More Autumn Colors


With Autumn challenges happening at the moment,  I was inspired to create another autumn theme card.

Here is my card.  Click to see dimension and detail.

Started with stamping the leaves onto white cardstock base card, with wild honey and barn door using the rolling technique in some leaves.  I then stamped the sentiment onto vellum with black ink and colored it in with orange and yellow markers.  I marked lines around the leaves to correspond to the sketch #20 at STAMPlorations Blog.

I wanted to add more to the design, so I started thinking zentangle and create a type of fence outline, I wanted to add dimension so I used a pencil to create shadows.  I wanted to use the white space, so I created some lines and circles.

Inks Used :  Ranger Distress Inks (wild honey, barn door), StazOn (jet black)
Stamps Used : STAMPlorations - grateful, thankful set
Markers Used : Mont Marte - fine tip markers
Colored Pencils Used : Faber Castle watercolor pencils

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges :-
