I just got some new Hero Arts stamps…. and for those who know me, Autumn and Halloween are my favorite. I think if I divided my stamps out, half of them would fall into this catagory!!!! Some people love summer, I love Autumn. There is nothing like wind blowing leaves from trees that have turned gold, brown, orange and yellow. Pumpkins, tons of pumpkin, pumpkin patches, pumpkin pie, just any thing with pumpkins. Warm scarves. Snuggling under a warm blanket. Oh How I love Autumn.
To do this card I used my distress inks. I did a light color and brought it in towards the middle. Then I used a red/rust color and brought it in about an inch and then the edges with a brown color. I then used the lucscious yummy colors from Wendy Vecchi from Ranger. I had been eyeing them for some time. I went to Beverly Fabrics to pick up some Glossy Accents and they had all the new colors AND they were on sale for 30% off. Yahoo!!!! I love Beverly’s and my bank has a deal that gives me cash back of 10% on my purchases. Can’t get any better than that. Because the new colors were screaming autumn and leaves I took out the new Scattering Leaves stamps from Hero Arts. I just randoming stamped them with the new colors around the edges.
