Fall Somethings

Happy Friday!

It's STAMP SOMETHING challenge day! Our design team member Alex is hosting the challenge this week! She's got a simple, but fun theme for the week...Fall Somethings. Make a project that has something to do with the Fall season.

I chose to make a card and I used this Sweet Ebony image. Apple picking is always one of my favorite Fall activities and this image reminds me of that!

I began by coloring the image with watercolor pencils and an aquapainter, my new favorite way to color images! Then I used these Fall colors...Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, More Mustard, Summer Sun, and Ruby Red to make my card.

I stamped the Canvas and Fresh Fillers BG stamps on the Old Olive piece. Then stamped my ink pad directly on the chocolate piece to give it a weathered look. The Summer Sun piece was scalloped using my corner rounder punch. The accents here are Jersey Originals Ribbon, wide grosgrain ribbon, Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, and paper flowers. I also used the ticket corner punch and crystal effects on the image piece. The sentiment stamp is from Fresh Cuts, a Stampin' Up! set.

Thanks for taking a look at my Fall Something, I hope you'll head over to STAMP SOMETHING and check out the design team samples. Have fun stamping your Fall Somethings! :)
