Fall Colors

 Fall Colors  - Todays challenge at Creative Card Crew is .... trees. It can be any tree for any season, but I was inspired by the changing colors and I love to make fall trees the best, when leaves become the flowers of autumn.

My Designer paper is K and Company's, Alleghany.

 
I tied my Bow with my Bow Easy. Then I added a stick pin.


I stamped my leaves with Distress inks - Iced Spruce, Rusty Hindge, Wild Honey, and Fired Brick.
 
You can get all of these Distress Inks at Simon Says Stamp, who is our sponsor for this challenge. They have some really great dies of trees in their Stamptember sale going on right now.
 

 
The stamp comes as a 2 stamp package. You just stamp in different color with the leaves until you get the color you want. The stamp set is by Sarasota Stamps.
 

I tried some different things before I settled on the final image.
 

 
These are the other 2 that I played with.

  7. Beautiful, beautiful tree. I wouldn't have thought of using blue for some of the leaves, but it looks great.
