love the Fall...

Once again I don’t have the “exact” colors for a challenge bu I work with what I have.
I found a wonderful new (to me) technique for...
at the Newton’s Nook Designs site.
I made the “ghosted” piece with white card stock, Distress Oxide inks (Bluerint Sketch, Wilted Violet and WIld Honey) and The Crafter’s Workshop “Aspen Trees” stencil.
That was layered to a white folded base cards cut smaller than an A2.
That was applied to a piece of eggplant card stock.
With Tim Holtz “Birch Tress” die and white card stock I cut out a couple of the trees and glued them to the front of the card.
To finish I stamped the verse from Hampton Arts “Give Thanks” with a mixture of Distress Oxide wilted violet and blueprint sketch inks.
