Altenew October Inspiration Challenge

Happy Saturday, friends!

 I am super excited to host October's Inspiration Challenge over Altenew Card Blog. As we are much more home-bound than the previous years, I am looking into my surrounding even more.

As the tree leaves in our backyard are starting to change colors, I am once reminded that beauty is where you look for it. The tree photo was taken from my backyard last year and I thought it would be awesome for our inspiration.

 Lucky for me, I have Fragile Foliage in my stash. It is a smaller stamp set and yet it has so many lovely design details that you can use this set all year round.

Let's start with the background, I applied Honey Drizzle, Warm Sunshine and Almond Butter from 1/3 top down. With the Woven Stencil and the Ink-Blending Tool, I had a best time creating a textured background.10042020-Fragile Foliage Stamp Set-Fragile Foliage Die Set-Woven Stencil-001

I love the intricate leafy trees and decided to stamp them in various colors. The Stamp Positioner such as MISTI allows you to stamp each color at a time.  Here I used Lime, Firefly, Snapedragon for the leaves and Almond Butter for the tree trunks. The inking process would be easier if you use mini cube sets. I used my regular oval sets and manged just fine, too.

I hope this tree scene inspired you to get inky. You can simply used these three subtle colors to create any floral, nature or any themes that you desire.10042020-Fragile Foliage Stamp Set-Fragile Foliage Die Set-Woven Stencil-003 You can also draw the inspiration from the photo's sketch and theme.
