Autumn is upon us with all the chilly rain and cooler temps. The leaves are beginning to turn, but are a long way from being at their peak. We live in an amazing area, and when the trees are vivid it's incredible.
The gals over at Double D have challenged us to do a card with trees. These are their inspirational tiles:
So many possibilities here.
This is what I came up with:
I have recently acquired a stamp set from Stampin' Up called Thoughtful Branches. I have been dying to get it inky, so now was my chance. This is a two step stamp, so I did the trunk in gold heat embossing and the branches in white. I love the way it turned out. The background was done with acrylic paint and alcohol. I saw this technique on YouTube and had to try it.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Stash Mirror Gold Card Stock
SU Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set
GKD Gold and White Embossing Powder
