Pastel colors of fall



 This is the picture for this weeks challenge at Paper Craft Star. Such pretty pastel fall colors.              
I took Banana, celery and chocolate colored card stock for my card. The tree is embossed with white and the color was then sponged around the tree. The leaves were punched out of card stock I sprayed with Color Wash.


 
On one of my Yahoo groups we are having a sketch challenge swap. This is the card I made for it. The image from I Brake for Stamps was stamped with Versa Mark and then embossed with black. I sponged the sky with distressed inks and then cut the piece up into 1 3/4" squares and put it back together on a background of black card stock.
