My kids have returned to school and so I'm feeling that summer is over and fall is beginning. I know that we are still in August, but I'm longing for my comfy sweaters. Today, I decided to create my first autumn card of the year.
I love autumn colors and went with a autumn gold theme. I love white on white cards so I thought I would try a gold on gold and I believe it came out even better than I imagined . What do you all think?
The culmination of my layers was the Flower Shelf image colored with more fall colors and grounded it with an outline of a very pale gray Copic. I think a nice gold brushed shadow would have worked as well. By the way, I also popped the image after fussy cutting it out. I used a pale cream paper for my image since white would be too stark for the gold paper. As always, my image is colored with Prisma pencils and I used odorless mineral spirits to blend colors.
Remember,for those of you on a limited budget, almost any image can be used for a holiday or themed card as long as you use the correct colors. You don't have to purchase a seasonal stamp, just purchase a stamp that you love; unless like me, your a stampaholic and have to stamps for every occasion.
