Happy Autumn

Okay, so it's not quite autumn yet, but it's just around the corner, so it's time for some more fall-themed creations! This card features lots of fun images from the new Fall Harvest set from the All Things Considered line over at Cornish Heritage Farms. I stamped the pumpkin label image in brown and colored in bits and pieces with Copics. Same for the crow image - not a whole lot of coloring, just enough to highlight it. To make the background paper, I stamped the oak leaf image repeatedly in orange ink. I used a wide pumpkin-colored ribbon as an accent, and tied it with rafia and a little tag made from another stamp from the set. The ribbon is from a ribbon factory outlet in East Stroudsburg, PA. What a fun place that is! I never miss a chance to go whenever I travel back up North. It's fun to raid lots of different places on a search for stuff to feed my addiction! :) Hope the weather is cool and crisp where you are; well, if ya like that sort of thing! :)

Beautiful Jean, when I first saw the label I thought it was printed, wonderful details in your coloring too!

I really like how you used color to enhance the stamp, rather than overwhelm it. I'm loving the vintage feel of the pumpkin!
