Hubs and I were off to a conference for his business earlier this week. He spent time in his seminars, I spent time relaxing, not cooking, not cleaning and not doing laundry. It was perfect weather for me - overcast, rainy. From our room's window I saw the ocean, and I spent a bit of time watching the waves come in. As the storm got closer- the swells and waves got bigger. There was a small pier going out towards the water. It was old and dilapidated. As the tides got higher in the evenings it would be 7/8ths under water.
The morning we left the sun came out; the view opposite the ocean had buildings. The color of the early morning sunshine on those buildings had a fabulous tone. I took a photo, but it doesn't do it justice. I'll post it at the end of my post.
On to the card for today. The colors at Color Throwdown
are Red, Yellow and Brown.
To my stamped and gold embossed leaves, I added distress oxide inks in candied apple and wild honey overlapping the colors in parts of the leaves. The sentiment was added to a brown strip also embossed in gold.
I love the way the oxide inks blend, perfect for some fall leaves.
Here is the view from our room looking opposite the ocean. The light was magical that morning may be an hour after sunrise. Or maybe it was just the difference between sunshine and the previous several overcast and stormy days. Either way, I loved the view.
Thanks for stopping by.
