I am posting a last minute entry for the 6th Chocolate Baroque colour challenge: an ATC-card.
Last autumn, on a cold morning after the first really frosty night we were walking with our dog in a nearby patch of trees, and all of a sudden it was totally quiet for a moment. This was notable, since there is a railway, motorway and many apartment blocks right nearby, but there we stood on the path waiting for the dog to inspect a spot of grass, and it was so quite, that we could hear leaves falling from the trees. The frost had taken some of the trees by surprise and the leaves were frozen and crisp and made a blink-blonk-sound as they bumped into branches on their way down.
I made the background by stenciling Distress Inks through the TCW Aspen trees stencil. To add a pinkish shade to the card, I decided to (at last) take a try with my Promarkers. I drew a narrow stroke of light pink on the edges of each tree and softened the stripes with the blender pen. In real life it shows more than in this picture. The leaves have been done with a stamp from the CB Autumn Edges and Distress inks spritzed with water. I stamped them on a piece of scrap cardstock, fussy cut and adhered to the ATC-card base.
