Since we're getting close to the end of summer (tears are flowing here!), I thought it would be fun to "Welcome Autumn!" Flourishes is also introducing some new Fall themed images starting tomorrow, so let's get in the mood!
There's nothing quite like the crispness in the air and all the vibrant colors that come with the Fall season. So~
Welcome Autumn by using autumn colors on your creation.
Easy enough, right?
I used the Popsicles & Pinwheels stamp set to create a little party scene for my card today.
I cut the lantern image on my Silhouette using the Popsicles & Pinwheels cut file and some Classic Ivory cardstock, then stamped my image in Archival ink. I paper pieced 2 of the lanterns and colored the other 2 using these Copic collections:
I stamped the barn image from the Country Road stamp set onto some patterned paper as a background, after stamping off once onto some scratch paper. The flag with the sentiment is from the Pistachio paper collection and the layers are matted with cardstock from the Rich Browns paper collection. I added a little embellishment of Celery Cotton Stripes Twill, a button, and some Kraft Jute.
My layout is from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #190:
I can't wait to see what you create this week using Autumn colors!
