Two roads

Good morning, my card share today features the new clear stamps from Chcolate Baroque,  Terrific Treescapes,  I've partnered them with stamps from Woodland Dreams   and PanPastels to create a misty Autumn scene.

I've had this card in my head for a long while and these new stamps were just perfect to create it. The sentiment from Woodland dreams was the inspiration for the card, unfortunately its a little blurred in the photo but it reads 'Two roads diverges in a wood, and I, I took the one less travelled by'. 
It can get a bit tricky making quite complicated scenes using a brayer but its so easy with PanPastels. I  used a torn paper mask for the hills at the back of the scene and also a mask for the sun but apart from that I just used the Sofft tools to create the scene with shades of green and brown PanPastel. I stamped the trees with Memento inks. The little bird is also from  Woodland Dreams, coloured with distress markers. I've used brown card for matting and layering and one of the Guild papers in the background.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crazy Challenge: Autumn colours
Creative Card Crew: anything goes
Heck of a challenge: shades of Autumn
LEJ Designs: Favourite technique (making scenes)

  3. The little touch of the bird just adds so much to this & it's intriguing to see how you layer the stamping with the PanPastels.
