Autumn Glow


Autumn is my favourite time of year, so I love making cards for this time of year. I don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I celebrate Autumn/Fall. Today for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers we had a visit to Osnat Fine Art. I was inspired by this painting, and I was in the mood to play with my Viva Decor Inka Gold paints. Below I show the layering I did with the stencil. To get the turquoise colour I mixed the blue and gold and added a bit of water then sponged it on the card. I added some of the red and more gold, buffing each after applying. I die cut the tree in metallic gold paper and applied on foam dots, then added sequins to finish. I hope you like it and thanks for having a look. 


This is the Tim Holtz stencil I used and here I am applying the first layers of inks, the steelblue and then the gold.
