Happy Fall


HAPPY FALL Y'ALL!  The sponsor this week for the Stamping with the Dragon challenge is Meljen's Designs and the theme is Fall Colors.  The winner will receive four images from the store.

I chose Happy Fall and printed the image twice so I could pop dot the circular sentiment that goes around the image itself.  I also fussy cut a second leaf to adhere is slightly off center from the base leaf to give it more dimension.  The pumpkin and leaf are colored with Copic markers and the edges are inked with Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold).  I added crochet thread inked with Bundled Sage Distress Ink to the pumpkin swirls for a bit of color as well.  The final embellishment is Enamel Accents between each of the words.  The shaped card base is cut with Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circles (#4) from digital papers designed by Create with TLC.  You can see all the different layers in the photo to the right.

Now it's your turn to show us your Fall Colors.  Head on over to the Stamping with the Dragon challenge blog and upload your creation before October 13.  Be sure to see what the other design team members have to share with you too and welcome our three newest members to the design team - Cheryl, Carly, and Caroline.  This will also be Tammy's last post as a SDD dt member, so be sure to stop by and wish her success with her future endeavors.


Copics used: Y32, Y35, Y38, BG 93, BG96, BG99, YR04, YR07, YR68    YR21, YR07, YR09, R14, R35
