AYSI211 Fall Foliage

Hi stampers!  Friday is here and that means another As You See It challenge...and it's a theme week:

Image may contain: text

Here in Pennsylvania, the leaves haven't turned like the ones in the photo, but hopefully we'll have some beautiful colors soon!  I wanted to capture those gorgeous autumn hues on my card, so here we go:

This is sort of like that "no-line" watercoloring...I stamped the tree from Rooted in Nature with Antique Linen Distress Ink, then simply filled in the leafy area in fall colors with my aquapainter.  I went a little further and created a grassy area with some piles of raked leaves:

I used the sketch from Inspire.Create:
After creating my image, I stamped a sentiment from For the Love of Felt on the top right, and added some stitching by using the stitch die from the Stitched Labels dies.  I finished it off with some retired DSP and stamped a Thanksgiving sentiment on the inside:

And I think I'll toss in the Color Throwdown challenge, with those pretty fall colors, as well this week:

I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week!  Be sure to check the As You See It blog to see all the DT creations and add yours there too!  Thanks for popping in today!

The new karate studio is HUGE!!!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Gorgeous card, LeAnne! Your colored leaves are so bold & bright! I cannot wait to see the leaves get this color! I seen one tree on the hillside behind us that is starting to change but for the most part everything is still green. Love this simple design, too! Enjoy your Friday & weekend ahead! :)

This is so, so beautiful LeAnne - your autumn tree is a watercolour work of art! It makes me want to dig out my Rooted in Nature and have a go too, although I'm not sure I could do it justice. Way to go!
