CTD419 - Thanksgiving Leaves...

The color throw down colors this week are red, orange, and green.  I used only SU items for this card.  I used the Vintage Leaves set with the die cuts that match it.  I punched a sentiment from tiny sayings and used a tiny clothespin to attach it.  Really quite easy.

CTD418, Friend to friend...

I'm so glad we haven't said goodbye to fall yet.  We are having some beautiful weather here.  My leaves are a combination of the colors for the week.  I used ink a gold in copper on one of them.  The other had both teal and orange swiped on them.  The other color appears green.  I have my dry embossing in there with a simple sentiment.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!! :>)

cQc365, Halloween Pumpkins...

I enjoyed playing in this challenge.  I masked my pumpkins and then watercolored the ones in front with tangerine and curry.  My pumpkins in back were shaded with black pencil.  Lucky me, I found some concord grape dp and card stock in my stash.  It came in handy just in time.  Thanks for looking and have a fun and safe Halloween.  :>)

Color Throw Down #416 - Open Heart

I created my bg with the SU stamp, sanded in kraft.  I then used French Script in blushing bride - which was close to peach.  My foliage was done in island indigo - the set was SU Open Heart.  I added a bit of cherry cobbler on my bird's head and with the sentiment.  Overall the colors weren't as difficult as I thought they might be to use.  Thanks for looking!!  :>)
