A2z Scrapbooking - Fall is coming


Hi Everyone,

 this post today is for A2zScrapbooking - an online store for Hero Arts products with the main mission of bringing great deals on scrapbooking supplies since 2001 while supporting worthwhile causes in the autoimmune disease area.

As we are into October now I thought a fall themed card is in order.....



I love this new stamp set by Hero Arts, called Color Layering Fall Trees (Cl886). It offers so many options. 


I took the little tree and stamped it repeatedly to make one big tree.  Smoothed the tree out with colored pencil. Then I inked up various leaf stamps in different distress inks, spritzed them with various amounts of water and stamped. Quick and easy and I love the effect!
Lastly I added some watercolor to make the ground and the sentiment. Die cut it with a stitched frame die an mounted it onto colored card stock.



I hope you will get a chance to join our monthly challenge - its all about fall.  Remember - Hero Arts Products are required.  This challenge runs though the end of the month. You have a chance to win a $25 gift card to the a2z Scrapbooking Store.

This is just so lovely, Cornelia ... looks just like the horsechestnut in our courtyard! Love how you've created such a fine noble tree from the smaller image ... such genius stamping! I'm guessing you've still to link up at Time Out as it's not in the gallery yet ... delighted you're playing along with us again! Hugs, Anita :)

You are a genius. I hav, and love, this set but it never occured to me to make a grand old tree from it. Honestly, you can't even tell that the stamp didn't come that way. It's simply gorgeous. I'm in awe of your skills.
