Gently Falling

Happy Tuesday,

Connor and I raked the last (well we hope) of the leaves out of the yard this weekend.  It is not a chore that I look forward too.  However, I love watching the dogs run and chase each other in the leaves.   They are so cute... and make the job more entertaining.  

 As we start to think about saying goodbye to fall. I thought I'd sneak in another fall card before the snow covers the ground.  

No copics were used to make this card.  It is all done with ink.  We stamped the leaves on ivory card stock then cut the card stock into thirds.  We used glue dots to raise up each panel. I think it adds to the illusion that the leaves are falling.   It is a very elegant card. I think I might give it a try using snowflakes.

Blast from the Past:  The card has a little stippling on the panels.  It is a technique I haven't used in about a decade.   I used a stippling brush to create the little brown spots on each panel.  It creates a texture and depth.  It is such an easy technique... just under utilized.
