Beautiful Fall

Another tree card. I can't seem to get enough of these trees. I used Farm Life along with the pumpkins from Autumn Beauty.

To start, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink.

Sponged Memento Tangelo.

Sponged Memento Potter's Clay.

I used sticky notes to mask off the top and then sponged Memento New Sprout.

Sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves, just along the edge of the mask.

Moved the mask down a bit and sponged Bamboo Leaves again.

Moved it down again and sponged Bamboo Leaves.

I removed the mask, and here you can see how it created the soft hillside.

I stamped the tree and colored with Copics, starting with YG21.

Added YG23.

Added G07.

Used E57 and E59 on the trunk.

I colored the smaller trees the same way and then cut out the large and small trees.

I adhered the trees with Pop Dots and also added the pumpkins. I didn't take photos of coloring the pumpkins, since I just did the other day. You can see that here.Then I added some shadows using N1 and N3.

I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and used a Tan Leather card base. I also added jute twine and a decorative brad.
