Autumn Trees

With Winter fast approaching I suppose it's a good thing I got this card finished! I am always inspired by the artwork on the blog challenge Craft a Scene, but have never entered. This time the theme was Trees and I decided to enter this card.


I started off by colouring the background Centura Pearl Card with a variety of Distress Inks. Then I overstamped using three shades of the Distress Inks the trees, using Crafty Individuals Stamp CI-209. I then spattered Cosmic Shimmer mica spray over the centre of the picture.  I drew in the fence freehand. I made a stencil to create the sun and overstamped the trees in the foreground using Brushed Corduroy Ink. Finally I added the sentiment again from the same stamp set and mounted the piece onto a kraft card blank.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:
LadyBug Crafts - Autumn Colours
So Artful - Trees

This is really gorgeous. I love your golden orange sun and your fence as well as the trees and the lovely watercolour look. Thanks for sharing it with us at Soartful.

This is beautiful! I love that you drew the fence by hand, it's perfect. (I couldn't draw anything, so I am always in awe) The spatters and layers of colour you have created are wonderful! Thanks for entering this in our Soartful challenge, it's great to see your work!
