What does Autumn mean to you? For me it's all about the trees. I love the changing colours on the leaves.
Less is More this week is looking for a theme of Autumn. What would you create?
I started with a little masking but with a completely different outcome to yesterday's Less is More card. Today's is a sunny crisp Autumn instead of a night scene. I punched a circle mask with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and placed this on the Whisper White base. I coloured two trees from Stampin' Up!'s Lovely as a Tree with my Stampin' Write Markers. Tapping some of the colours onto the branches then stamped into my circle. I then sponged the same colours going over the edges of the trees to create a dreamy watercolour look. I used the circle punch to punch through Chocolate Chip card and again through Crumb Cake after stamping the Crumb Cake with the Woodgrain stamp. As my scene is a little miniature, I didn't want my sentiment to over power it, so I used Teeny Tiny wishes. Originally this was all going to be one layer but I really have to master masking without getting the shadowy effect. However I'm pleased with the result on this card and the darker Chocolate Chip mat helps tie it all together and make the colours pop.
Lovely as a Tree is such a favourite of mine. So many different ways it can be used all year round.
