This week at the JustRite blog the challenge is to use this fall color combination:
These colors remind me of fall when we lived in north Georgia. We would get the changing of the leaves up there, it was amazing! Down here in Florida, it doesn't get cold enough for the leaves to change, I really miss the colors.
I am also entering this into Polka Doodles contest, they are giving a way a set of Aquamarkers!
I had so much fun with this card. To start, I stamped and sponged my own DP, using the cheap and easy toilet paper method to sponge my inks onto ivory card stock, then stamped two images from Verve's Autumn Wishes. It was so much fun! I then stamped my pumpkin image and sentiment, both are from the Autumn Blessings Borders & Centers set. The pumpkin image is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I double stamped the leaves in front of the pumpkin and an extra leaf from the set and cut them out and popped them up with foam dots. The image and sentiment are also on foam for dimension. It does not show up in the photo, but I used my Sakura glitter pen on the dots and vines, love the little bit of sparkle it added!
Thanks so much for stopping in for a peek, have a great day. :)
