Thinking About Autumn
August always makes me think about fall, probably because I taught elementary school for so many years. So I got out Summer Picnic DSP and "Give Thanks", a stamp set I really like. I stuck with two main colors--Real Red and Old Olive both for paper and ink. To add contrast, I turned the Old Olive DSP sideways so that the lines are horizontal. I stamped the image using Basic Black and the sentiment in Old Olive. Using markers, I colored in the apples, leaves and pail. I believe I used Basic Gray for the pail, but I can't remember for sure. If I were to make this card again, I might emboss the pail in gray instead of coloring it in.
