This week's challenge was to create something autumnal with a tree or trees and today's card was made using sponges. I buy them from the art department in craft shops and they come round in a pack of 3 and I cut them up into segments. I use one segment for each of my Stampin' Up inks and I put a little tab of the corresponding card stock on each sponge so that they don't get mixed up - it's also something to hold whilst sponging.
I started with a piece of cream card stock, punched a circle from a post it note and placed it on the card. I chose my autumnal colours and began to build my scene
The background hills are created by tearing some copy paper. I then added some fir trees in a very pale colour in the distance.
When all the card stock had been sponged darker trees were added along with the focal point of my scene - some birds on branches
When I made this stamp I designed it so that that it could be used for any season - as you can see I have stamped some autumn leaves on this one. The birds looked very pale in the trees so I went over them with a black Promarker with a fine tip added on.
The finishing touches were made and the card stock was matted on to some dark brown card stock and finally placed on a square cream card blank
All the stamps used except for the tiny leaves are my own designs - the tiny leaves are some I borrowed from a Clarity set.
