Autumn Trees

Hello and happy Friday! Today I have a card using images from Farm Life.

I stamped the trees on a piece of Pure Luxury White, cut to 3 1/4 by 4 1/4 inches, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I began my coloring with Copic marker YR14.

Added YR07.

Filled in with Y23.

Used E39 to shade the trunks.

Then added E35 and E53.

Used E57 on the fence.

I sponged the sky area with Memento Cantaloupe ink.

Then sponged Memento Desert Sand at the bottom and around the edges.

Then sponged lightly with Memento Tangelo around the edges.

I used torn sticky notes and masked the top.

Then sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves along the edge of the mask and at the base of the tree.

Sponged a little Memento Rich Cocoa around the bottom edges. 

I used YG95 to color in the grass at the base of the tree and then used W1 and W3 add shadows under the trees and fence posts.

I cut my Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown layer to 3 3/4 inches wide and then tucked a narrow end in my largest scallop square Nestabilities die to add the scallop detail to the bottom. Then I trimmed the straight edge to make the finished size of the layer to 3 3/4 by 5 inches.

Stamped the sentiment on Pure Luxury Ivory, then the sentiment out using oval Nestabilities and sponged Memento Desert Sand ink while still in the die.

I added some jute twine and a button and adhered to a Pure Luxury Pumpkin Spice card base (4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches).

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend! Products I used on this card...
