Fall is definately becoming my second favourite season!! I've got such great pictures this year, and we've been so lucky to have had such a long summer, and mild fall I couldn't resist making this card! I've been following Jennifer McGuire's Holiday Thinking Inking over at Two Peas and this card was made with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I didn't stray too far from her card as I loved how the leaves turned out and really wanted to use this stamp set. The idea was to use watercolour paper, (I used regular paper) stamp your image with the distress ink and then spray with a mist of water to make the ink bleed. That's what I did here. I used the oak leaf from the Lovely As A Tree Stampin Up set and I was very happy with how they turned out. I inked the edges of them and the cardstock with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and also used Antique Linen so they weren't too bright. I used some Stampin Up Welcome Neighbour dp as well. I'm going to give this to my Pops who will be 88 this month!
This is one of my favourite photos this year from some trails near my home and why I wanted to do this card.
