It is a Hero Arts Tuesday.  I tried to get a card done for this sooner, but alas it didn’t happen.  I loved the color combo challenge and made these two cards based on it.

I adore fall.  The changing of leaves, the cooler weather.  I think I love it because we don’t really get it in southern Arizona.  But my favorite thing to do is drive up north to see all the beautiful colors of fall in Sedona and Flagstaff.  It really is my favorite time of year.

These are both all digital images.
I just wanted a nice simple pattern and a gradient in the change of colors.  When I finished this one, I really wanted a second one in all kraft.  Which I can totally do.

I was surprised to see that the kraft on kraft panel didn’t pop as much as I had hoped.  Hmmmm, what to do, what to do?  Grab my white gel pen of course.  I love the effect on this one just a smidgen more.

Have a fabulous Tuesday.

    I may not love fall, but I do love these cards! I am amazed at how precisely you outlined that one line of leaves, and it totally makes that second card.

Your comments really make my day, thank you!
