Today’s card is a mix of stamps from different companies and different techniques. A true Mix and Match! When you look at the supply list, you will see I had all sorts of inks out on my desk!
The background was created using Kitchen Sink layering stamps and multiple shades of inks. It was die cut and the edges inked. The scarecrow from Penny Black was stamped with cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers, and then fussy cut. (NOTE TO SELF – Get that Scan N Cut machine up and running!) The scarecrow was adhered with SU dimensionals.

I don’t know about you, but autumn is my favorite season, I love the colors, the crisp air, the changing shadows as the earth tilts Minnesota away from the sun. I don’t like the raking leaves part, or more accurately the mowing/mulching/bagging fo leaves, but that is usually a few hours on a couple of weekends and done. What is your favorite season?
