Oh the CHALLENGES!!!!! Whachadoin' Wednesday Falling for you!
Oh people! Can you feel a bite in the air? Can you smell the homey-ness of apples ripening on the branch in the sun? Me either *snort* but I know it is just around the corner dag nabbit!
Today's Whachadoin' Wednesday challenge is to make a card that represents Fall to you... and tell why you chose what you did.
Around these parts, there are no beautiful maple forests that turn a palette of magnificent colours after the first hard frost. My first hard frost is about a week away and I need to get my crabapples in and make jelly. We have poplar trees in bulk, aspen groves up the wazoo and evergreens everywhere! That's a whole lotta brown and gold happening, hence my palette. I love walking in a natural reserve close to my home in autumn as the Aspens lose their leaves. I feels like being showered with gold leaf (pun could be intended...) and it is quite lovely!
Here's my fall card;
stamps; leaf it to me (SUINK)
paper; cardstock by core'dinations, blue awning (K&Co)
ink; espresso adirondack, tea dye, vintage photo distress ink (ranger)
accessories; aged copper brads (making memories), brown ribbons (martha stewart), gold charm (blue moon beads), hemp cord
