Fall is in the air.

Lovely As A Tree has been in the Stampin' Up! catalog for many years.  It has probably been the longest running stamp set they offer.  The images cover all seasons.  I love this set and it was one of my first purchases, but this is the first time I have used it.  I belong to a Facebook group called Stampin Up Addicts.  We buy, sell, and swap on the group.  I love the swaps.  I participated in the Halloween swap we did in August and it was so much fun.  For the September swap, we did a Fall/Thanksgiving card.  This time we had enough interest to do two groups.  I signed up and sent my cards for the first group as soon as I could.  The second group had a lot of interest, but some of the ladies dropped out or didn't send in their cards.  When the call went out for more entries, I answered and created this card.  I am sadly lacking in Thanksgiving/Fall sentiments and had to use a non Stampin Up! sentiment for this card.  It is from Hampton Arts.  This is one of my few watercolor attempts.  This one turned out better than most.  The colors I used are Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip.  The image was stamped on watercolor paper with Stazon Black.  My card base is Bravo Burgundy.

  1. Rhonda, I love the way this tree is colored. It looks like a stamp I have never seen in the book instead of one that has been there for a long time. What a difference the coloring makes!!
