Beautiful Fall Colors with Gently Falling
With this card I have showcased some of the beautiful fall colors. I think leaves in general are very soothing, and the richness of fall colors just magnifies that feeling. This card has a base of Pumpkin Pie with layers of Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry (the "other" fall color). The richness of these colors together is just breathtaking! Inks used were Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Pumpkin Pie. To create this effect of the falling leaves, I simply stamped several leaf images in different colors, then topped it with the outline image in Rich Razzleberry. I ran the Old Olive strip through the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder and flagged the ends to give it more texture and interest, then popped up the leaf panel on Dimensionals. I love this card--it looks so stunning and is very quick and easy to make.
