Le Jardin Wishes

Happy Wednesday!  It's a lovely evening here in Sherwood, with the temps around 80 degrees, clear skies, birds entertaining us out the sliding glass door, plus I finished a card for the color challenge at Splitcoaststampers using this week's sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

The colors for this week's color challenge - Elegant Eggplant, Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow - are perfect for a fall card.  At first I thought about using leaves, but then decided to use a long retired stamp set with a beautiful tree image.

Using markers, the tree was first colored in Delightful Dijon, then Cajun Craze was randomly inked over it.  Finally I added a bit of brown for the tree trunk and Mossy Meadow for the grass.  The sentiment, in eggplant, was stamped with the aid of a Stampamajig.  The panel was then layered on a larger Elegant Eggplant rectangle and topped with a strip of card stock covered with Cajun Craze Washi tape.

The base is Mossy Meadow covered with the same card stock embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  The twine and button, free during the last Saleabration, tie the colors altogether.
