Fall Colors and Themes

>> Wednesday, September 27, 2017

I went on a retreat in the mountains this past weekend and was able to feel some Fall air - it was wonderful!  Here in Central Alabama, we pretty much have to wait until Winter is about to start to get a break from the heat. I am always jealous of other areas at this time. We still visit the Pumpkin Patch in October and our local one should be opening up in a few weeks. We had fun with the Grandsons last year, but this year they will be 2 and totally able to run around have fun - should be some serious fun.  My first card today celebrates the fun I am anticipating.

I used the new Pumpkin Patch image on kraft and colored it up with Prisma Pencils.  This is the kind of display our local Pumpkin Patch does for picture taking opportunities.

For my next card I used some of my new Distress Oxides (I am a huge fan now).
I used the new Script Happy Thanksgiving Greeting stamped with Distress Ink and added the Open Leaf image which I colored up with Distress Inks and Prisma Pencils. I felt it needed a bit extra so I added some gold Stickles making them look like paint splatters.

Hope your Fall is full of beautiful colors.

Oh, that image on Kraft is just fabulous! What a brilliant idea, it's so perfect for fall! I absolutely love the simplicity and the neutral tones. Well done on the second card too! The background is so cool and I love the subtle multi colors on the leaves!

Both of these cards are incredible Nancy!! I agree with Karin - stamping the pumpkin patch on kraft was brilliant and your coloring of it beautiful!! Your 2nd card has me thinking that I really need to get me some distress oxide - you nailed a perfect fall background to go with your wonderful leaves!!
