Here is my take on Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #125. We noticed this weekend that the leaves are just so barely starting to turn color. It’s coming to that time of year.
I stamped my leaves using the stamp rolling technique. The combinations were Autumn Terracotta and Cranberry, Goldrush and Autumn Terracotta, and Sunflower and Goldrush. Why I didn’t stamp the leaves directly onto the background, I don’t know. Instead, I stamped them on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out. To give the plain paper some texture, I used the Saran Wrap technique on the Autumn Terracotta card base. The sentiment was mounted to the card with foam tape.
Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Autumn Terracotta, and Cocoa cardstock; Autumn Terracotta, Cranberry, Goldrush, Sunflower, Cocoa, and Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink ink pads; Close To My Heart Nature’s Vein, Air Mail (retired), and Impression Obsession Count Your Blessings stamp sets; Sunflower mini brads; Sponge dauber; 3M foam mounting tape.
A Slice of Life: If today was any indication, it is going to be another fast week. This evening, we drove out to Dustin and Miranda’s house to check on their progress. I think my son, however, must have Little Red Hen Syndrome, as I keep offering to help, and he keeps saying (more or less), “I will do it myself.” LOL. With what is left of the evening, I’m going to stamp a little and then take a relaxing bath before I hit the sheets.
I hope your Monday was a good one, too. Thanks for stopping by.
