New Stamps and a Sketch ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I love this time of year, autumn, and I especially love that some of the challenges out there ask us to play along using an autumn theme or the colours of autumn. So today I have a card I created following a sketch and the theme of autumn colours and here it is …
An A6 card
All that lovely inky and watercolour goodness
A beautiful Lotus Peony stamp
A previously rejected snippet and my mini rainbow
A final look
Die Cut Diva’s Challenge Fall/Autumn Colours
Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #41 Sketch
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Use a Stamp
The flower stamp is part of a new set that I recently won from the lovely Kim Costello of Paperbabe stamps. I was looking at my box of NBUS stamps, my box of created by me backgrounds and checking out which challenges I wanted to play along with this week and month. I found this beautifully rich strip of AquaTints coloured card and I immediately knew that I wanted to follow the sketch at Paperbabe Stamps Challenge whilst using the colours of fall for some other ongoing challenges.
Autumn, or Fall, is my favourite season, there is still warmth in the
air during the day but it’s not boiling hot and the evenings tend to feel a little cooler and then the leaves start to turn a little. Except in the
! It’s rather warm and very humid right now
lol. You can nearly always trust the
British weather to do the opposite of what it should. UK
