It is time for another For Your Inspiration challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> FYI38.
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!
I hope you join us at For Your Inspiration!
