ColourQ 111 and PPC41

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

The color challenge this week at ColourQ has a nice autumn theme, so I thought I'd ink up one of my leaf stamps for it.

Then I came across a new (to me) challenge called Scrapbooker's Paradise so I thought I'd give their newest sketch a try.

I did a little rock-and-roll on my leaves from Gently Falling in Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry.  I think I even added in some Pear Pizzazz on the little one.  This is a "two-step stamping" set so I heat embossed the outline with gold embossing powder (even though it doesn't look like it).  I tried to replicate the sheaves of wheat in the image graphic with one of the stamps from Tropical Party.  Close, but no cigar, I say to myself.  But I still kind of like it!

I'm on vacation this week and next and I foolishly thought that this would give me oodles of time to spend in my stamp room.  How wrong I was!  I seem to keep finding things to do around the house, coupled with trying to get some Christmas shopping done, so find myself neglecting my stamping.  I hope I'm not the only one that is better at managing my time when I have loads of things to do rather than when I have nothing to do!

Thanks for stopping by!
