APC - Week 3 - 2nd card

Back with my second card from Week 3's (last week) challenge.  The second card was a Fall card which I was so excited about.  Autumn is my favorite time of the's crisp and cool and the trees are lovely...just spectacular.

So, I set about making this card.  I used gesso as in the example and I made some fun frosting texture just for fun.  

After it was dry I used some PanPastels to color the entire card blending with each new color I added.

Here's what it looked like after I added the first layer of color.

I wanted to highlight the texture in the gesso so I applied a layer of Copper Metallic PanPastel which really made it pop (irl).  It's a bit hard to see in the photo but the metallic copper has a lovely shimmer to it.  You know I love my sparkle ;)

I stamped my oak leaf on both the card and scrap paper.  I trimmed the one stamped on the scrap as it will be my mask in the next step.

I stamped this great "trees" background stamp over the entire card with a light brown ink.  I LOVE how it turned out against the PP background.

To finish it off I stamped the word Autumn and added chocolate brown to the edges!  

Stamps: Leaf & Tree Background - Just For Fun Rubber Stamps; Letters - Unknown

Here are both of my week 3 cards together...

I'll be working on Week 4 cards over the weekend and share them Monday...
Then I'll be caught up again :)

Hope you have a weekend filled with art...
and if not, maybe you can sneak in a bit of ink or paint somewhere!
