Fall

We are having a not very pretty fall here - it's been too warm for this time of year and everything is still green.  So I thought I'd play with one of Tammy Tutterow's clings and make my own fall.  Put on your sunglasses - this is a bright one!

TT Fall

supplies: white, Dark Chocolate, and watercolor paper, Tammy's Fall for You cling stamp, Hero Arts (retired) Maple Leaf cling stamp, various fall distress inks and lots of water, Spectrum Aqua markers, Simon's Stitched Maple Trio dies

I started with a piece of watercolor paper, and stamped the big maple leaf all across it in varying shades of distress inks, spritzing with lots of water.  Then I used the puddles of those same inks to splatter more color.  When dry, I overstamped the Fall for You and colored the details with my markers, then framed it in chocolate and added it to an oversize card base (5 1/4" X 4 3/4").  After die-cutting the small stitched leaves, I used the same distress inks to color them, then added them to my card.

  2. Thanks for the beautiful reminder of what fall should look like. It's mostly green still here in Cincinnati and then everything will be brown.
