I just happen to sit down a few nights ago and stamped several
images I want to color with the new Stampin' Blends markers.
I stamped these leaves from Color Seasons in Memento Tuxedo Black and
colored the first in Cherry Cobbler, the second in Pumpkin Pie,
and the third in Old Olive. I took the color lifter to the middle of each leaf
to lighten the center.
I was not sure what I would do with them or if I would use together.
Then I saw this challenge and it was a perfect fit!
I went diagonal with Fall, Dies, Gold.
I used the sentiment from Merry Cafe stamped in Pumpkin Pie
and layered on a banner of gold foil.
I added a gold metallic enamel shape for some more bling.
I wanted a background for the leaves but I did not want to water color,
and I thought the burlap background would be heavy and I wanted some color
to it so not just emboss the paper.
I grabbed my gold Encore ink pad and a baby wipe and
dabbed the in on the white paper lightly.
It did make a cool effect.
Maybe what the wind looks like when blowing...that might be a sketch!
Hope you can play along this week over at
Thanks for stopping by!
