I am so excited to participate in the Papertrey Ink blog hop tonight. The challenge is to create a project inspired by any aspect of fall: colors, fabrics, textures, etc. Part of the challenge is to try and work a little outside of your comfort zone. Well, CAS definitely is my comfort zone. So that didn't stretch me. The thing that did was adding more than one color to my fun little leaf stamps. I've never done the "rock and roll" technique or added more than one color to a stamp in quite this way. I'm sure to many people that's not a challenge at all, but to me it was. I am glad I tried it, because I think the multi-color leaves look really neat.
So that is the card I came up with. I had so much fun using these leaves and can't wait to make more fall/Thanksgiving cards with this set. I love it in fall when the colors start to change and the weather starts to turn. I used to not enjoy the beauty of fall as much as I do now. Fall meant winter and winter meant cold weather and snow. Then I met my husband and we started dating in the fall. Now, as soon as I feel that crisp fall air, it brings back a lot of great memories for me.
That's all for now. Happy Hopping!
