This is such a beautiful picture. Orange/yellow trees are my favorite in the fall. I definitely wanted to recreate that!

I needed a sympathy card and feel the fall tree works well with that sentiment.

I embossed the card base with a woodgrain texture.

The tree image is stamped offset to leave room for the twine.

To ink up the leaves, I started with my lightest color then added the next shade and then the darkest. I went back over the lighter color (with the lightest ink) to help blend (then I just smooshed the pad onto scrap paper to get the darker color off the pad).

As a final touch I decided to add a tag with a little heart in it.

Thanks for stopping by!
