Stamp Something in Fall Colors!

Happy Friday!  Today at Stamp Something, our challenge is to use Fall/Autumn colors! Our sponsor is the wonderful Simon Says Stamp!  I chose this gorgeous Sweet Pea image, "Light of Beautitude," and colored her in orange and reds with Copics.  The sentiment is from SU.  The papers are DCWV (available at Simon Says) and My Mind's Eye.  The ribbon is from my stash.  I finished the image off with colored glitter gel on the wings.  Thanks for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon!  Please visit all of the new DT for more fun fall colors!

Monochromatic with a new stamp

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  I spent a relaxing weekend at camp with my family and had lots of time to sit and color!  I got tons of new Sweet Peas. This is "Silk Dance," my first time NOT using "standard" hair color.  I thought it would make a pretty monochromatic card.  So I went with all purples.  I used 3 different purple/lavender cardstocks, embossed one with Waves texture plate by Fiskars using the CB. The flowers are a combination of Primas, nylon blooms and glass bead flowers.  The image is colored with Copics.  I finished the distressed edges with dark purple glitter gel.  Thanks for stopping by today!  See you soon!
