Happy Fall Tree

Happy Fall Tree 3722a1
It sure has felt like fall the last few days. It’s been downright chilly and the trees are showing some wonderful colors.

This card is for aColor Combo Challenge by Scrapmaster’s Paradise and it’s being sponsored today by DRS Designs! The colors for this challenge are Crushed Curry, Really Rust and Always Artichoke. What great fall colors!

I’m using a brand new fall image, L070 Spooky Tree w/Moon along with E580x Happy Fall One ‘n All, D701 Medium Silhouette Leaf and H618x 2Fall Leaf Background.

The tree was stamped on to vanilla c/s w/ the chocolate ink and I painted some bleach into the moon area. It was cut w/ a Spellbinders oval Nestie and a technique I came up with called Out of the Box Nestie. A little color was added w/ markers and after I edged it w/ the markers, I used a water brush around the edge to blur it.  It’s attached to rust and artichoke ovals.

The curry bg was stamped w/ the leaf background image and a combination of palm leaf and sienna inks. The edge was punched and it was attached to an artichoke layer w/ one rounded edge, then a rust layer.

Happy Fall Tree close up 3720acThe greeting was stamped w/ the chocolate ink, then I used an ochre marker to trace the letters.  Two leaves were stamped using the Kpad and cut out. I made two faux brads by using a 1/4″ hole punch on part of another stamped leaf and attaching them to pieces of punched cardboard.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the challenge!
