Stamp Simply #155 - Falling Leaves

Sept. 3 - ssnotime155 - Falling Leaves -  A great theme for this time of year!  So today's challenge is to incorporate leaves into our projects -- any type of leaves, any type of card or project -- let's just see some beautiful Falling Leaves this week as we transition into fall mode!
Play along and link your project on Sharon's blog, No Time to Stamp, using Mr. Linky. See what colorful projects the team cooked up this week....our Ring Leader - Sharon, Janine OrchardA J OttoDeb SaarenenDeb NeermanBarb Anders, and Barb Schram. 

I thought this image fit the Falling Leaves challenge perfectly. This is another scene from Impression Obsession's Summer's CHA release. AND... see the black kitty peeking in the window... how could I resist adding this stamp to my collection! My bad little cat doesn't go outside but spends a lot of time on the screened in porch. When the leaves start falling, a few always manage to sneak in under the doors and he attacks them all like he is a fierce predator defending his kingdom. I used Copics (of course) to color this image. Love the smooth blending you can achieve with Copics on the multi colored leaves. And for the background I used four squares and glued them to a panel - running them all thru the Cuttlebug at the same time to keep the embossing nice and cohesive.

  6. Beautiful coloring job and especially love the colors of the apples. Nice that you kept the basket light enough to see the details instead of going dark brown. MLN
