Speedy's Challenge #20, Fall Colours!

Happy Saturday Everyone, it's time for another challenge from Speedy the Cat's Friends! This weeks challenge #20, is to use fall colours.

Just so you know, a randomly drawn winner will win a FREE stamp set. There is one winner drawn for every 50 entries, and if you use stamps from Mark's Finest Papers your name gets entered 2 times. You may enter as many as you like...just upload your creation here by Friday September 17th at 3pm.

For my sample this week, I'm using the new set Stinky Situation just released this week! I love this set, it includes a few critters, sentiments and this great tree background!

I stamped the images in black onto white. The trees seemed kinda lost so I decided to colour in between them and it really helped to make them stand out.

The card base is black with a layer of white and then DP from Basic Greys Origins. The procupine and layers were cut with the petite oval/scallop nesties.

I finished it off with some beautiful black satin ribbon from MFP's and some yellow taffeta. I tied the little sentiment tag on with some fancy black fibre!

Stamps: Stinky Situation
Paper: black, white, Basic Grey Origins
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, daffodil delight
Accessories: petite oval/scallop nesties, satin ribbon, taffeta ribbon, fibre, MS tag punch, dimenionals, copic

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
Have a Great weekend,
