Retro Rubber Challenge #25 part two...
Candy Corn Trees...


TGIF everyone! Today starts a new challenge for the As You See It Challenge. This one is all about color – specifically three – lost lagoon, basic black, and pumpkin pie!

  #109 10.23.15

My card is an homage to the fall tradition of raking leaves! One of the best things about being a kid (or an adult who feels like a kid) is jumping in a big pile of freshly raked leaves! So I set about making my own pile of leaves. aysi 109 1 (547x640)

I used a variety of inks and the SU! Sheltering Tree stamp set to make this image and then added a bit of lost lagoon for the sky and a smidge of always artichoke for the ground. aysi 109 2 (640x444)

I opted for a simple command for my sentiment – JUMP! I went through several ideas for a sentiment and finally stuck with the one that brung me – I liked the word jump all on its own.

So be sure to play along with us this week! Link up your creation HERE!

I am entering this card in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge as it is what inspired me to come up with this card!
