Stamp Simply #160 - Back to Nature

Oct. 8 – ssnotime160 – Back to Nature –  Sharon says : Autumn is truly beautiful here in Upper Michigan – the changing of leaves from green to a rainbow of rich yellows, oranges and reds, the crunching of the fallen leaves underfoot, the sight and sounds of birds migrating south and the smell of applesauce cooking! I love this time of year!
      
Today let us be inspired by Mother Nature in our creations – let’s create something with a natural, earthy feel reflective of ANY season YOU enjoy – it’s the natural/earthy element we are going for here, not necessarily autumn.

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 Andersand Barb Schram. 
We have the very talented Jerri Jimenez stamping with us for October!

I love Autumn too! The leaf background is a stamp - one of the large Cover a Card stamps from Impression Obsession....I stamped in Memento Black and colored the leaves with Copics. I stamped the quote on a Twinchie (two inch inchie!). I also airbrushed around the edges. A few mats to complete this card... a quickie card! Coloring the leaves is not time consuming at all... I just added dabs of colors and then used a yellow Copic to smooth them all out and blend the colors together. A little jute string wraps around the inchie board and I added a little bow on top. Finished card size is an A2.
