Fall Fun!

Monday, October 18, 2010

An amazing photo for this week's challenge #32 at The Shabby Tea Room - Chocolate Covered Autumn!! Pattie is our host this week and her challenge is to create a card or project with cake, flowers, colors or all. I went with the colors for my card.

This week's sponsor is Meljen's Designs, a wonderful stamp company, their stamps are such fun! They provided us with some digi stamps to work with for our projects. There's a prize this week of four stamps of choice. Here's my card, I did just have fun with this one, I love walking through fallen leaves at this time of year and this card is a representation of that!

The digi stamps I used are Autumn Leaf & Acorn and the sentiment is a freebie Happy Fall. I looked at some real autumn leaves for the colors before I painted the leaves with watercolor paints. I added some shimmer by painting over some of the leaves with Creative Inspirations Paint.

The colors I used were Evergreen, Garnet, Chocolate, Pumpkin, and Burnt Clay. I pierced the stems and veins of the leaves for some interest. To add some dimension I used some foam pads between layers.

I know this card is a little different from what I normally do but I just love the colors of autumn leaves, even though I was a bit literal with my card! Hope you have a lovely day!
