Autumn Brook & Lakeside Cove

The weather has taken a turn here in New York City. The air has that crispness to it so you know fall is fast approaching. With that in mind, I decided to make this card for my nephew. I find when ever I make a masculine card for my family and friends I reach for my stampscapes. This time, i didn't use my brayer, but used sponges since there were too many fall colors I wanted to use for the trees. Boy, did I get my hands dirty, but in the end it was worth it. They are much more vibrant in person, unfortunately, I couldn't get a good shot..

since I had all my inks out and the stampscapes out and my hands were covered in ink, I made this as well..after all we always need those extra masculine cards...

Stamps: Stampscapes: Autumn Brook, Rocky Peaks (small), Rowboat, Lakeside Cove, Grass
Paper: Stampin Up: Old Olive, Papertrey: Summer Sunrise, Autumn Abundance, Dark Brown CS I think is Bazil.
Extras: Top Note Die, MS Border Punch, Distressed Embossing Folder
Inks: I used both Stampin Up & Adirondack Inks

As always, thanks for looking
