The Colors of Fall

Welcoming the arrival of fall with autumnal colors.

The Colors of Fall
From masculine to autumnal to Halloween, there are endless card designs that you can create with this fabulously mysterious image. 

The glowing backdrop was created by masking off the edges of a rectangular piece of white cardstock and applying various Memento inks with sponge daubers.  Tip/Hint: Stamping the image after the removal of the masks allows the image to extend beyond the color block and adds visual interest.

Some simple matting and an antique button finish the design. 

Happy Fall,
