Two challenges in one

Welcome everyone on this beautiful sunny Sunday.

Yes it is a bit blowy - well it is here anyway - but it is so nice to see the sun & it is quite warm too.

I have entered two challenges today with one card.  Here is the card & details follow

I am entering this in this weeks Less is More challenge, which is with a sketch & Crafts4Eternity where the theme is Autumn.

The tree stamp is from Kanban Autumn Silhouettes & I inked the tops of the trees for some foliage at the bottom to ground the trees.  The "forever" sentiment is from a little pack of unmounted stamps that I do not have the name of.  The background rectangle was coloured using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in the following order - Crushed Olive, Wild Honey, Vintage Photo then Fired Brick.  To tone down the Fired Brick a little I carefully went over again with Wild Honey.  With a damp paintbrush I took out a circle of  ink in the top right hand corner to simulate the sun through the autumn haze.  The images were stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  The main image was then mounted onto black card to lift it off the cream card.

Thank you for stopping by, your comments are always welcome.
