Over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog, the new challenge is Autumn Leaves! Gosh, I think that after hurricane Sandy enters and exits, most will be on the ground, awaiting clean up. Here is a card that I created that shows my love of the fall.
I found this gorgeous stamp from Impression Obsession hiding in a bin near my stamp table. it is called Colonial Fall. I did not want to solidly color the image, so I got out some sponges and dabbed color here and there. I added a few touches with Copics, just to give a bit of definition. I decided to cut it out with the Spellbinders Floral Ovals. A little more sponging was added to the edge, and then it was time to mount it using foam tape. The designer paper is an unknown, but the card stock base is Pure Luxury. For embellishments, I made a hemp bow, and punched and sponged some leaves. The punches are from McGill and Emagination. One simple amber gem finished it off.
Thanks for the visit, and I hope to play more today!
