This card is perfect for fall. I love these Apple Trees.
Using Lawn Fawn products, I made this awesome fall card with these really cool looking apple trees. I love these little mice, especially the one grabbing the apple from the tree.

- Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio – for the grass
- Distress Oxide Lucky Clover – for the grass
- Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass – for the sky
- Distress Oxide Broken China – for the sky
For the grass, after I colored it using the lightest color (pistachio) at the top and the darkest color (clover) at the bottom, I took the same colors and put on my craft mat, sprayed a little water and used a small paint brush to add splatters.
For the sky, I added small water droplets, but only a few.
Copic Marker Colors:
Tree: E41, E42, E43, E44, and E87 for the trunk
Leaves I used green: G40, G43, and G46; for the yellow: Y21, Y32, and Y35; for the brown: YR20, YR21, and YR24.
Apples: R24, R29, R35, and R39. But not in that order. The order is darkest to lightest, R39, R29, R35, and R24.
Apple slices: R29, R35, and R24 and for the core: E00, and E000.
Mice: E50, E51, and E53. For their noses, E55. Overalls: B91, B93, and B95

The trees take practice. I made several before I found this color combination I liked. But I really enjoyed making the trees and making the leaves more fall looking than spring, but these trees would look amazing with bright green leaves too.
Happy Paper Crafting!
