Colors of Fall

Hi, thanks for stopping by, I am here to share todays project "Colors of Fall" four fall cards,
fall is such a pretty time of year with the weather changing, which means all the trees are changing colors as well. I created them using Tim Holtz die " Tattered Leaves" and the new paper collection by Quick Quotes "Earth Wind Fire".

The view of all four cards, I used earth wind fire and the Tim Holtz die "Tattered Leaves". With each card the back ground was created by using many the scraps. I used the scraps in many different directions creating unique backgrounds. I then used a larger piece of the paper to layer over the unique backgrounds to layer the leaves and the letters of fall.

 Card 1

Each of the leaves has been distressed with Navy PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  The leaves tied with a thin string distress with PowderPuff Chalking Ink, This was repeated on all four of the cards with the exception that Bard Board Chalking Ink was used instead of Navy.
