Hi Stampers!

Today starts a new Crafty Sentiments Designs challenge! This week we are using Fall Colors! Easy peasy so you will need to play along with us :)

Here is my inspiration project for you...

I used the super pretty rubber stamp called Vinca The Fairy. I colored her with a mix of copic markers and Spectrum Noir. The spectrums I used were for the oranges, all the rest were copics. I used the out of the box technique for the image and then mounted it on a burnt orange colored doily that I found tucked away inside a paper pack that I had purchased from a friend a long time ago. I added some prima flowers and used the Martha Stewart Branch punch to create some leaves. I kept the ends long on my two smaller flowers and then used my petal roller to make them curly for some added texture. I always envy those people that make the very elaborate floral displays on their cards...I can't do that at all - LOL! Three flowers seems to be my limit for figuring out how to place them so I like the look - LOL! I added a piece of scrap crochet ribbon and punched the edge of one of my layering panels with a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment I chose is from the My Favorite Things Flower Silhouettes Stamp Set.

Here is a closer peek at Vinca...

I hope to see you play along with this week! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
