Fall is here...sort of!

Well, Fall was sort of here today...it was 63 degrees at 6:30 AM when I took Katie to the bus stop. It's now about 77!! Gotta love FL weather!

This is one of my favorite stamp sets right now! The color scheme came from Kristine Werner's blog: http://kwernerdesign.com/blog/2008/10/color-inspiration-23-1.html. The sketch is for the SC196 from SCS! I thought the Vanilla looked a little harsh, so I inked it with some Kiwi Kiss to soften the look. It's hard to tell, but I stamped the pumpkins on vanilla and then stamped it again on watercolor paper and then watercolored it and layered it on top of the vanilla using pop dots.
Recipe: Stamps - Cats & Bats - Inkadinkadoo, "Fall" - Technique Tuesday; Paper - Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, watercolor paper; Ink - Kiwi Kiss, Choc Chip, Staz-on, SU Markers - Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Aqua Painter; Misc - nestabilities, oval punch (SU), fern punch (Martha Stewart), linen thread, Old Olive Ribbon, Swirl CB folder, sponges

TFL!
