Autumn Leaves

Made using sketch #5  for Verve Stamps World Card Making Day Release Week challenge.  This one was very challenging!  I started out using designer paper for all of the blocks but the tree, but nothing would come together, so I stamped each panel instead.  The tree is a digitalstamp from Hero Arts.  I sized it down and colored it with colored pencils, then did a little sponging around the edges with scattered straw distress ink.    All of the other stamped panels were distressed using vintage photo distress ink

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Challenge: "it's Autumn", Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #9, Fall, and Stampin for the Weekend: Autumn Inspiration.

Supplies: various oranges, rusts, cream cardstock, Hero Arts Basic Tree digitalstamp, S5101 Raindrop Background, K5175 Houndstooth, H5261 Flourish Trio, F3342 Stitched Ribbon, CL119 Happy Thanksgiving, CL361 Season of Giving, The Paper Company Studio Autumn Stamp Kit (sentiment), scattered straw, mustard seed, spiced marmalade, wild honey, fired brick, and vintage photo distress inks, Hobby Lobby orange dotted organza ribbon
