Hi friends. I love autumn. I think it's my favorite season. I love the rich, vibrant colors of the fields and trees. I love the crisp, cool air. And I love the smell of burning leaves. We've had a few cooler days and nights. It was in the upper 40's this morning.
My card making tends to reflect the current season, so I made some with autumn leaves. This one was made for the mixability challenge on SCS.
The 2nd card was made for the inspiration challenge on SCS, which was a zentangle site.
I used the die that matches the stamps from the first card, but did not use the stamps for this one. On the die cut leaf, I added vein lines and then just starting doodling. I used colored pencils and white gel pen to enhance the doodles. I love how it turned out.
The background is a rubbernecker stamp. The light green layer was actually a light yellow cardstock, but I thought a green would match better and bring out the green on the leaf. Since I already had it glued to the black backing, I just sponged it with green to change the color. All just part of the way I create as I go. Not too much planning. Even when I do plan ahead, I usually end up changing things along the way anyway.
Thank you so much for taking time to stop by for a visit.
