The Colors of Autumn

Frances gave the CCEE challenge team a sketch challenge this week.  



Fall is one of my favorite seasons.  I love the vibrant colors as the leaves turn on the trees and the feel of the cool, crisp air.

I stamped the trees in Memento Black and then used q-tips dipped in my reinkers to color the various colors of autumn on my trees.  I used a watercolor brush for the lighter shade of green on the ground and then a q-tip again to color in the shading.

Please visit our CCEE blog to see the cards Shirley, Joanne, Tosha, Frances, and Cindy made.  We'd love it if you played along with us!
