Two of my favorite challenges are on Wednesday and it seems to me that I'm always here writing posts about the new cards for those challenges...
Let's start with the first one:
This card is made following this sketch:
When I saw the sketch and had a look at the Challenge sponsor of the week I immediately decided that the tree was perfect for this sketch.
I have lots of digis but no, I couldn't change my mind: I had to have that tree and make a fall card with yellows, oranges and dark greens.
But let's start from the beginning.
The digi is from Clear Dollar Stamps and the papers I used are from DCWV (orange) and an old Sizzix stack (checks).
The tree was printed on white paper and that's probably the reason why I'm not completely satisfied with the finished card, it's not exactly the card I had in mind. I distressed the border and the papers with distress ink but the digi was already colored and I was afraid to ruin it completely and did not dare to touch it.
Everything is colored with watercolor pencils and some of the leaves are glued with 3D dots.
The challenges I'm entering this card are the following ones:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge # 97 where the sketch comes from
Raise the Bar Challenge # 62 where the theme is "Tree-mendous"
In these last years I've understood that I'm a fall person: it's my favorite season of the year. Of course, I do love spring and summer: I love hot weather, the long days, holidays, the summer fruit and everything but my soul is in fall that is at her best. I wish I could write a better English to explain my feelings in a clearer way!
I'll surely be back later for another post!
