Autumn Colors


Hi everyone.  Time for a new challenge at ATCAS.  We had so many wonderful entries for our last challenge (code word:  Transparent) ... and were amazed at the different interpretations - so much fun!! :)

This time, our fearless leader Kylie of Kylie is Addicted to Stamps (and now Butterflies), has picked this fun and challenging :) ... code word:





Prize:  CAS Perfectionist gets to choose 5 of their wonderful images
(please follow the rules to be eligible to win)




I let the colors of the season inspire me to make this card.  I masked the card front using post-it notes and then randomly sponged yellow, green and coral.  I stamped the oak leaf outline image a few different times, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with the placement.  I removed the masks and then stamped a simple sentiment.

Here's a close-up:





Stamps:  Gently Falling (SU!); Friends Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White
Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  sponges, Stamp-a-ma-jig



I hope you'll come and join in the fun at ATCAS - code word:  One-Layer.  Drop by the challenge blog to see the rest of the fabulous creations from the Design Team.
