Color Hues #27 Orange and Green

 It's time for a new month and new challenge at Color Hues! I love October as the weather turns cooler here but it's still most enjoyable to be outside. It also begins my frenzy of making Christmas cards which is one of my fav stamping seasons. 

For our challenge to use orange and green I began with an older kit that I still really love, Color Pop Autumn from PTI. It includes sturdy papers, stencils, stamps and pre-printed die cuts. 

Beginning with a charcoal textured card stock that has design in white (you can see a sample of that behind the card), I used the stencils and Distress Inks to color the leaves and blossoms in shades of orange and greens. Stamping over the images, I added details like the veining or berry centers. The sentiment is die cut in white and I stamped the thanks. The die and sentiment were part of the kit. 

I apologize for using products that are no longer available! These seemed perfect for the challenge and I am glad to have used them again after a long time of sitting on the shelf.

I sure hope that you will have fun creating and link your cards to the gallery! Have a wonderful weekend.
