Charms of Autumn
Hi blog friends! I've missed you, its been such a busy week. I have had this card for awhile, just waiting to be included in the line up. LOL. When I first received this stamp from Nancy I really wanted the sky to be blue and not black. So I stamped it in this spring rain color. I tried coloring with copics but it was just too much contrast. So next I tried water color pencils and I am really happy with how it turned out. If I could do it again I would make some changes, like the yellow glow on the lantern- um hello? its not night! Also I would not run that rick rack across the whole card. However I wanted to show that the stamp could be done in other colors. Thanks for coming by today! I have company all weekend, I volunteer at my son's school on Monday (normally my day off)- so I don't know how much blog fodder will be up this week, but I do have a post at Waltzingmouse Makers tomorrow.
