Mosaic of the Seasons

It's Korin's turn to host the sketch challenge this week over at Splitcoaststampers; I took her vertical sketch and adapted it for a horizontal card. This newly released Autumn Collage from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps set is very special to me - I asked Korin to create something along these lines (I so wish I had some artistic talent, lol), and this gorgeous image is the result of her hard work!

The leaf brads from Eyelet Outlet are sort of perfect for this card, because those two green leaves fit perfectly on top of images that are very similar, and give it just the right pop of color!  I colored everything else with my Spectrum Noir markers, added some sponged ink to my distressed edges and rolled them up, and finished the card by stamping the flowers from Flowers in Bloom to the card base.

Card Stock: Kraft (Neenah); Cream (Mohawk)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko); Brushed Corduroy (Ranger)
Coloring Medium: Spectrum Noir
