Fall is all about colour!

Fall is in the air!.   We had a very nice warm day, but as soon as the sun sets, that chill sets in.   I made this fall colors inspired card for the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

I used the brayer technique here and some sponging too for the tree shadows, and the hills.

I brayered the sky in the top 1/3 of the card first, then stamped the trees and swirly leaves in the foreground. Then, I used the Really rust ink and brayered it on the bottom 2/3 of the card.  Using my sponge and Chocolate Chip ink, I sponged on the shadows for the trees. Using the edge of the sponge I made the hills in the background. I  took some guidance from Michelle Zindorf’s magnificent tutorials on her blog.  She shares her inspired designs and helps us learn how to do it ourselves; now that to me is the true spirit of the stamping community!  Oh, and she makes it look sooo easy!!

I love this tree stamp from Flourishes! It’s from the Forest of Trees set.  I also used the leaves swirl and branch from Inkadinkado.  The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms Time to Stamp set.

I always do my best to answer questions should you have any.  Feel free to e-mail me or ask in a comment.

Hope you all have a creative day, and thanks so much for all your fabulous comments!!!
