The beauty of Autumn...

The new DRS designs challenge this week is a
Autumn Wonders.

For my card I used the Open Leaf

I stamped it repeatedly masking as I stamped.

Then I used my new Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to color the leaves. These pens are so fun you can use water if you want a lighter water color look. They blend great and you can us the over the top of you Copic. They have so much sparkle.

After coloring the leaves I made a frame and mat then used a white jell pen for the stitch marks.

The Beauty Of Autumn   was stamped with white color box pigment ink then embossed with white embossing powder on vellum.

On the inside I used the Changing Leaves and Coco Brown. I stamped the Medium Silhouette Leaf that I colored on the stamp with the sparkle pen.

Join in the fun.

Have a wonderful day,

Scary,Creepy Halloween

Hi all, I know the calendar says it is fall but the thermometer says it July Hot, Hot, Hot. It makes it hard to think about ghost walks and hayrides. Which are some of my favorite fall actives. And Scary movies, the scariest of them all is what you cant see. To me this Raven is super creepy why is he there what does he see.  

For my card today I started by sponging the background with 
Distress Ink, squeezed lemonade,and wild honey Memento tancelo, peanut brittle. If you have trouble sponging on the Memento cover the card with a coating of the lightest Distress Ink in this case the squeezed lemonade. Then adding the other colors on top. Once the background was dry I stamped the The Raven with Color Box Black then clear embossing powder. I very carefully colored the limb with brown Copic. The Accent Bats were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. 

For the greeting I stamped and embossed the Run in Fear then sponged the same colors over the top.

The spider web is a ms punch and the background is a embossing folder.

On the inside I used the Witches Brew Halloween Greeting.

Have a wonderful day,
