Study of Colors

 
I love this time of year....the color of leaves is ever changing. Every morning the sun shines through the trees and they are a blaze of colors.  The canvas is aglow with a new explosion of colors each day as I look through the windows.  I love making fall cards and showing the colors of Autumn. In this card I tried to capture the transition of colors in a leaf.  It was just a fun thing to do as I played with masking and coloring with Distress inks creating a CAS card.
Challenges:
CASology: Cue is leaf. #14
Stamptacular Sunday: Photo Inspiration-fall leaves -see below
Kaboodle Doodles: Autumn Leaves Falling / Fall Colors
The House That Stamps Built: DCC1010 Masking Challenge....use masking to layer falling leaves.
Supplies:
Stamps: GKD "A Year of Leaves"
Inks: Memento Morocco, Pistachio, and Tangelo for stamping the images and sentiment.
          Ranger Distress Inks Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, and Barn Door for water coloring the leaves
Paper: Textured Ivory CS from Stash, GKD Pumpkin Spice for card base
 
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
