indian summer

I bought this lovely pad of basic grey indian summer paper a couple of weeks ago and I can't stop using it. The colors are so rich. I had stamped a bunch of the branches when I was working on the Japan pti challenge a couple of weeks ago so I thought I would try a fallish one.... and it was perfect for this weeks mojo sketch. I inked the leaves with first summer sunrise, more mustard, hibiscus & scarlet jewel .... in that order. When you get to the darker colors just pat a little around the edges ... kind of like the rock n roll technique but make some of the leaves a little darker. I absolutely loved the way it turned out. I wish my picture looked better.... I don't know why when you upload to blogger the picture really losses it's quality...

Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

  1. What a beautiful card! Great interpretation of the sketch and I love the way you've mixed the inks on the leaves - it's so effective!
