Tis Autumn

What a beautiful time of the year!  It is once again time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, and how appropriate that this time the theme is create a project around Shades of Autumn.  For my inspiration piece, I was drawn to a beautiful plate of stamps by Artistic Outpost called The Outpost. When I think of Fall, I think of Fall Harvest and farming.  The farm scene was stamped on a vintage book page.  The edges were torn and then distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The stamped panel was layered over a panel that was sprayed with several Dylusion Spray Inks and distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  A Sissix Doily Diecut was cut from Kraft Paper and tucked under the focal panel.  The Raven Ribbon, scooped up at the end of last season, was added to the panel above the sentiment, which is also from the AO stamp set.  Leaves were stamped over top scraps of paper that were sprayed with Dylusion Spray Inks, trimmed and added to the card front along with some Mulberry Paper Leaves.  Vintage wooden buttons, scraps of corrugated cardboard, Baker's Twine by Martha Steward, an Idea-olgy bird charm painted with Ranger Patina Paint, and Copper Liquid Pearls complete my card.  You will want to pop over to FSC to see all the inspiration pieces my Design Team Sisters have created, and I hope you will consider submitting a creation of your own for a possible chance at a great prize.  As we are a stamping challenge, please be certain to include stamping we can see and note that digis are not permitted.  Thanks for dropping by! Best wishes, Yvonne
