Thinking Of You

I love both of these challenges from Just Us Girls and The Paper Players because I could incorporate my love of all things autumn into them both! I started with some Chocolate Chip cardstock from Stampin' UP and layered some plain white cardstock over it. I stamped the plain tree image from the Avocado Arts Perfectly Perfect Day in some Gina K charcoal brown ink so it would be nice and dark. I took one of the multi leaf stamps and using Memento Dew Drop inks in Dandelion, Tangelo, and Lady Bug I stamped the leaves multiple times to create a beautiful fall foliage tree. I inked a few of the leaves individually to create a slight blowing cascade of them caught in the wind. I repeated the same process onto a smaller piece of cardstock, cut it down, framed it out with the same brown cardstock, and popped it up off of the card using some Scrapbook Adhesive foam squares. I stamped the sentiment from the Avery Elle Petals & Blooms stamp set. It's a simple but pretty card and I love the way it turned out. I hope you do too!
