Happy Saturday! Today the challenge at Just Us Girls is a photo inspiration challenge, and Marisa has chosen a photo of the most beautiful fall table scape. I just love fall colors!
Here's a closeup of the beautiful photo.
I was pretty literal with this photo. I used the colors and leaves as my inspiration. While I was searching my bevy of fall stamps, I found this leaf image in an old set from Gina K designs called Autumn Leaves. I stamped it on watercolor paper and used Distress Markers and a water brush to color it. I was really hoping for more orange leaves, but the brown seemed to overpower the oranges and yellows I used. I added some shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen.
I needed a sympathy card for a neighbor's father, and I just adore this sentiment. It's from a PTI set called With Sympathy.
I used this sketch from Seize the Sketch challenge blog.
I'm also entering this in the Trigger Tuesday challenge. Obviously inspired by the leaves!
You can see more inspiration on these blogs.
