Let's Get BASTED!

Hi Stampers!

I will have TWO posts for you today! First up is my post for this week's new Love's Rubberstamps challenge! This week we want to see FALL LEAVES or PUMPKINS on your project! Or you can be adventurous and use both :)

Here is my project...

I used the C.C. Designs Monkey Feet Tom Turkey image and colored him with my prismacolor pencils because I wanted him to be soft looking. My papers are from the Authentique Thankful Paper pack. My embossed panel I created using a Sizzix embossing folder called Autumn Words (I think) and the cardstock I used is the Tim Holtz Core'dinations Distress Rusty Hinge. After embossing it, I lightly rubbed a nail file over the top to sand the words. I will be getting this cardstock listed in the store soon :)

Here is a closer look at my sentiment. You can see I layered some brown skeleton leaves behind the sentiment for my Fall Leaves :)

This sentiment cracks me up :D It is actually a Digi from Whimsie Doodles. 

I also used a sketch for my layout from Sketch 'N Stash:

I hope you enjoyed my project! Be sure to check back later this morning for my Crafty Sentiments Designs - Design team post :)
