And that was sort of the inspiration for today's card that I made for the CAS (clean & simple) challenge on splitcoast stampers. Today's challenge is a sketch challenge based on this card here.
I used a technique called thumping to color in this lovely tree image. I began by using several fall SU colored markerd and then I started to color the leaves. Once the leaves were colored I began thumping over the them with the same color markers I was using. That's how I was able to create two different colors on the same leaves- it looks more realistic and fall like. Once I was finished with my thumping I used my chocolate chip marker to again color the brown tree trunk and branches. And remember to 'huff' onto the stamp before stamping it onto your card stock. This remoisted the ink. The Stampin' Up! markers I used were: old olive, more mustard, tangerine tango, cherry cobbler.
The top half of my background is embossed using my vintage wallpaper embossing folder and just under my embossed area I added two score lines. And that's about it for today's card. I hope you liked it!
