But it's ok, that is Mother Nature doing Her stuff and every year we all enjoy the beautiful color palate of Autumn before the trees go to sleep for the Winter waiting patiently for Spring to arrive and wake them up again.
I have a card to share with you this frosty morning with one of my favorite Winter scenes, that I made for the Muse: Christmas Visions challenge, here is my card.
This beautiful image is from the 2014 SU Holiday Mini Catalog, sadly it's retired, this set is called "Beauty of the Season", I love it, Cardinals are gorgeous birds and I see them, all year round, coming to the feeders in my back yard.
I stamped the image onto a Canson water paper panel with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with the aqua painter and SU markers in Cherry Cobbler, Bravo Burgundy, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Basic Black. I added a bit of SU white craft ink to the branch and berries and sprinkle it with SU Iridescent Ice embossing powder for a bit of sparkly snow, then heat it up to set.
The sentiment is from another lovely retired SU set called "Winter Memories" from the 2012 Holiday Mini Catalog, I'm so lucky to own this beautiful sets.
Here is the Muse card that inspired my card, I didn't have a kitty or any other critter hanging from a branch so I picked this Cardinal who's perched on one.
Thank you so much for stopping by, till next time, Happy Stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
