We had another beautiful fall day, unseasonably warm. I'm still wearing capris and sandals and not even needing a sweater! The leaves on all our trees are still as green as summer, which I think is unusual. They haven't even started to turn colour yet. I hope they get to and that we don't plunge suddenly into winter without getting to experience the beautiful colours that come with autumn.
Mind you, I have a photo of our maple tree and it is just starting to change colour on Nov. 5 in 2012, so I guess we're not that different. I saw a card on Pinterest that used a bare tree and then the drip image from Gorgeous Grunge to make the leaves. I thought I'd give it a try using this week's Mojo Monday #366 sketch.
It was fun to work with this sketch, although I had to trim quite a bit from my stamped image in order to fit the sketch.
- I really like how the Drip image from Gorgeous Grunge created the illusion of fall leaves using Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango ink. And, of course, you know that the tree images come from the venerable and well-loved Lovely as a Tree stamp set, that has been in the catalogue as long as I can remember.
- The DSP panel at the back is from the Colour Me Autumn Designer Series Paper collection - a watercolour wash in Crushed Curry! The narrow vertical panel has a Pumpkin Pie design from the Sweet Taffy series.
- I used a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock, embossed with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder for the third panel.
- Some Pumpkin Pie Chevron Ribbon adds a horizontal element for balance.
- The sentiment is from a new, but very useful stamp set full of a great variety of greetings and sentiments called And Many More.
