I cut the tree from Floral Foliage out of copy paper & saved the positive & negative. I began by taping the negative over the panel & sponged Spring Moss & Classic Kraft for the tree. The image of 3 blossoms from the set was stamped in Autumn Rose. With the mask in place I inked the tree with Versamark so I could clear emboss it. Magenta Stickles was added to each flower & I managed to brush it with my hand a couple times--hate waiting for Stickles to dry--haha! I used the positive mask over the tree to color the background by smooshing Spring Rain & Fine Linen & then both colors were sponged. The smooshing just adds some texture for a different look. The sentiment from Wonderful Words Hello was stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate & the panel was spritzed with gold Shimmer Spritz. I grounded the tree with thin brown ribbon & Hero Arts cream lace I've had forever. The panel is mounted to an Autumn Rose mat with fun foam.

Each of them was stamped repeatedly with the little leaf image from Big, Bold, Seasons using a matching dye ink. I used a ruler & pencil so I could cut each piece into pennants. I assembled them in threes--one of each color with the red one in the center & shorter. The center is made with a punched kraft circle & the sun die from Big, Bold, Seasons cut from a scrap of soft gold paper. The same paper was used for the autumn die cut & the word from the set was stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent chocolate. The card front was stamped in Versamark. I added scattered straw Stickles to the flower center & the word. Everything was already attached & I didn't want to start over, but the red & green looked too much like Christmas. I sponged on Distress Ink vintage photo, which helped some, & then added vintage photo Stickles. Now, of course, you can't see the leaf stamping, but at least it has a bit more Autumn feel. Hopefully it will brighten someone's day. I'm also entering Dies R Us, SSS Work it Wednesday & The Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
