Celebrating Fall

The first theme for Concord & 9th's Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge is "Celebration".  I don't have many Concord & 9th products yet, but since I love fall and want to celebrate it, I thought I'd pull out my first C&9th product called Take A Bough, and make an autumn tree.

Celebrating Fall

supplies: Take a Bough die set, fall distress inks, wood skewer, wood slice 

I started with an 8 1/2" X 11" piece of thick white cardstock, and sponged on 4 or 5 different yellows to reds distress inks, then cut my branches and constructed them just as I've done before.  After they were threaded onto a wood skewer, I inserted it into a wood slice as a base.  It stands about 7" tall, and is now in my kitchen making a bright splash of color for the season!
