Penny's Challenge #11


Well here we are at Wednesday already and that means it's time again for Penny's Challenges. Today's challenge is :



Autumn themed Project.

The only catch is that your project

MUST include trees.



Thanks to all of you who have been playing along in our challenge!! It's great fun to go visit new blogs and be inspired by all the awesome talent out there in blogland! I hope you join us again this week and the weeks to come ... Penny has some great challenges in store for you!!! Here is my creation for today's AUTUMN with TREES challenge ... what do you think??? This was VERY EASY and great fun!! I simply took a piece of white cs (4" x 5 1/4") and using white sponge pods (1 for each color) started with my old olive and swiped the color across the bottom on the panel ... then moving up with really rust ... next layer, more mustard and finally summer sun. Using Versafine black ink, I've stamped my Rubber Stampede tree image three times (center, left, right) to created my scene. Added the geese & verse (both from Stampscapes), mounted to a black card base and Viola!!! my card is complete.
I hope you'll try this easy technique for creating an autumn scene and upload it to Mr. Linky at Penny's Challenge Blog. If you're uploading to other online gallerys (SCS, PCP, etc.) please use the keyword "PC11". Please be sure to check out the inspirational creations from the other design team members listed below and show them a little comment love:
Darlene - (you are here, teehee)
Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back later with my creations for today's SCS Sketch Challenge and the ever fun Color Throwdown!! Hope to see you then!!! Have a great day!!

Great autumn themed card and very striking colors. I've heard people say you can use the brayer to do this but I think your sponging is a lot easier. Awesome Darlene. Pat

Micki said...

love it, lol and since I've tried this technique I am lovin' it. You're so right, it is a fast technique (as long as one doesn't have to hunt for the brayer, lol). I'll try to participate :-)

Sorry am late commenting Darlene! Your Fall card w/trees looks like an actual painting...it's awesome girl! I love the colors you used and stamping that image 3 times worked, I might've needed to try that several times to get this scene...LOL. Fabulous job hun! : )
