Please join us in the challenge and upload your creation to the Mark's Finest Papers Blog. There is a FREE stamp set drawn for every 50 entries. You don't have to use MFP stamps, but if you do your name will be entered twice!
For my sample today, I used the Autumn Fun set. It's new to me, and I was really wanting to get it inky! The squirrel stamps so beautifully, with such great detail. I stamped the squirrel with memento rich cocoa onto white. Then I coloured him in lightly with some copics. I cut him out, but thought the colours looked a little dull, so I decided to emboss him with clear embossing powder and that really brought out the colours.
Tip: Since I had already cut out the squirrel, to make embossing easier, I used repositional tape and attached a strip of scrap cardstock to the back of the squirrel to use as a handle!
The card base is not quite navy, with wild wasabi on the bottom, edges sponged, and white on the top with sponged in clouds. To make the clouds I used a mask made from the scallop circle punch and copy paper, then I sponged on baja breeze.
The squirrel and the sentiment are on a Label #4 die, with more mustard sponged around the edges while still in the die.
I finished it off with some ribbon and an acorn charm charm from MFP.
Sorry I haven't been around much this week, I've been trying to get some Christmas stuff done, and Olivia was home sick for 3 days. I still have a ton of stuff to make for Christmas!!!!
Have a Great Weekend,
