What a poetic title for a colour challenge... but I'm sure everyone knows what is meant by that!
I love autumn shades and here are the cards I made for the autumn colours challenge at "Less is More" this week!
I used this image yesterday when preparing service sheets for a Harvest Festival service for a priest friend, for this coming weekend. It accompanied the hymn "Praise and Thanksgiving" which has a line in it which reads "Fruits of the orchard". I thought it was quite appropriate. It wasn't coloured on the service sheets however. Here I used Mirage Pens and a little Glossy Accents.
The embossing folder is one I bought today from Cuttlebug and the sentiment is from Tattered Lace. I think it's a Dienamics tag which I shortened slightly.
For this I coloured a piece of card with distress Inks using sponge daubers and then die-cut the leaves using a Cheery Lynn set of dies. The background is simply a splodge of inks using a watercolour brush. I can't remember the make of the sentiment... I'm thinking Simon Says Stamp but can't be sure.
This is also for Retro Sketch #135 and I'm using Sketch #132
I cut these little trees from the scraps from the previous card's left overs. The harvest moon was masked and the sky inked with Stormy Sky distress ink. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
