Saturday Evening Post Fall Cover

Hello and welcome.  First, I would like to apologize for the not posting for so long.  Unfortunately, between my migraines again, plus the flu, I've been down for the last couple of weeks.  I'm finally feeling well enough to try my hand at stamping again so I decided to jump in at the last minute with the Cornish Heritage Farms fall challenge.

Pulling out one of my retired Saturday Evening Post stamps, I stamped it in memento tuxedo black ink onto snow storm white card stock before coloring with prismacolor markers blending as needed.  Once I was satisfied with the coloring, I lightly stippled Tim Holtz wild honey, vintage photo, brushed corduroy, spiced marmalade, and dusty concord distress inks around and over the image.  After layering, and adding some pumpkin brads, I added some silk glitter leaves to finish framing my colored image.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
