It is FINALLY starting to feel like fall here and I love it! Cool mornings, warm breezy afternoons.........ahhhhhhhh heaven............
This card is so perfect for today. All the touches of reds, greens, and yellows mingled with the dark brown tree trunks...... it truly is Autumn Beauty.
I started this card by making a polished stone background with alcohol inks and Copper Mixative onto glossy cardstock. For a more detailed explanation of a polished stone background, please check out the Technique Junkies newsletter (please consider subscribing if you not currently a member). I stamped the woodsy image with Timber Brown Stazon ink onto the glossy cardstock after I was sure the inks were dry.
To preserve the beauty of the rich fall colors, I opted for a very simple sentiment (from Sweet N Sassy Stamps). I just cut the sides into points with scissors and added the aged copper brads on each side.
Someone special will be getting this card in the mail soon. I wonder who it could be?? ;-)
