Hello!  It’s the third Thursday of the month, which means it’s color challenge introduction day at CAS Colours & Sketches.

It took me a while to decide what to do with these colors.  I had several ideas in my mind, but when I played them all the way through in my head, I didn’t like the way I envisioned them turning out.  Finally I thought about this tree stamp that I hadn’t used in quite a while.  I thought it might make a nice card for transitioning from summer into fall.  The lighter color leaves are from stamping the leaf stamp without inking it up again.  It also took on a bit of the brown from the limbs when I did that, which resulted in some two-tone leaves… perfect for autumn!   I first stamped the bird right onto the tree, but it didn’t seem to show up very well.  So I stamped it again on a scrap of cardstock, fussy cut it, and glued it on top of the original image.
