Fall Shadow Play


A new stamp set from Altenew prompted me to get inky again yesterday and I am really liking how it is so easy to do a shadow in a scene with these stamps. I made mine into a Fall themed card since this is the season we are enjoying now.

I think this fits the Altenew 2016 Fall Inspiration Challenge photo and also the Penny Black and More challenge too.  Both feature the beautiful colors of Autumn. I stamped the images from the set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink except for the shadows which were stamped with Memento Gray Flannel. Other Memento inks sponged onto the card scene were Dandelion, Bamboo Leaves and Summer Sky. The images were colored in with Bic Ultra Fine Mark-It pens. I also used a black marker to add extra leaves falling from the tree by hand drawing them.

The sentiment was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto ivory card stock and I used a circle die to cut it out. I also die cut a circle of the pattern paper that was the same as the border of the main panel and then layered them together before popping them up on the card. My base card was made with ivory card stock. All card stock used is from Gina K. Designs as is the pattern paper.

The last things I did for my card was to add some die cut leaves over the sentiment, an eye in the bird with a white gel pen and some little rhinestones in the upper right corner of the card.

Supplies Used:
Altenew Shadow Play stamp set
Cheery Lynn Dies: 
Card Maker's Stacker's Nesting Dies A2 size rectangle ST 014, Stacker's Nesting Dies Circle-Classic XM-4, and Flourish Leaf Strip B178.
Memento Inks
Gina K. Designs-Card Stock and Pattern Paper
Zots Pop Dots
Bic Mark-It Pens
Crafter's Companion Glue Pen
Scor Board

I am also entering this in the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping in and for all the comments. It is a beautiful Autumn day again and I am loving the crisp but still sunny days. But it sounds like a rainy pattern is moving in again, so I best enjoy the sun while I can. Take care all of you.

God bless,

Stunning, beautiful, and I love your color choices! I adore each leaf and the shadow! I'm so glad you are having autumn cool sun. We are under flash flood warnings here, out of the blue. Just poured, stopped, getting ready to pour again. Take good care and much love to you!

I have not seen this stamps set with shadows before. They look amazing and your placement of the sun really does cast a shadow of the tree and bird. Great concept.

I made a little scene card using stamps for my May Rudolph Days Challenge entry. I had to add a bit of my own hand drawing to get the look ...
