On my drives to and from work I have been enjoying the autumn colors with the beautiful oranges and reds on the trees. This card was created using Stampin' Up's French Foliage set.
I started by sponging a piece of Naturals Ivory paper with Distress Antique Linen, Adirondack Lettuce and Certainly Celery. The leaves were stamped in Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie and More Mustard. I then lightly colored them with Prismacolor Pencils. The splatters were stamped in Crumb Cake.
Autumn was stamped in Old Olive and embossed with clear embossing powder. It was adhered to a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two. A rainbow string bow and pearls finish off the label.
The inside sentiment is a stamp by Impression Obsession. It was stamped on a Spellbinders Labels Seventeen #5 also in Old Olive.
My husband saw the background paper sitting on the counter and asked me if that was printed paper. I chuckled and replied "No, I stamped those leaves!"
I hope I have made you "ooh & aah" for the autumn season. Enjoy the brilliant colors!
