I have been away from home for almost a whole month and am so glad to be back and stamping again!! Congratulations to the very talented Wanda Cullen for winning the very first Dolce Stamps and Cards Challenge !! This month we are featuring Impression Obsession stamps. I challenged everybody to make a card using fall colors. Yes, I am late for my own challenge, due to some family matters, however you still have 4 days left to enter and would love to see what you come up with!!!
This weeks keywords are DSAC02 for your public galleries and or blogs and don't forget if you use an Impression Obsession image on your card you'll get a second entry into the prize drawing. Be sure and check the side bar on the Dolce Blog for all the rules.
Here is what I created for the challenge....
I was inspired by the colors of the changing maple leaves. I love the oranges, greens and reds of the fall. I knew I would have to use this gorgeous BUTTERFLY GROUP-F8123 by Impression Obsession (My new favorite stamp line). I colored by butterflies with Cream, Spanish Orange, and Crimson Red Prisma Colored Pencils and Gamsol. Thanks to my fellow Design Team Member Judy aka Jaydekay (best dang colorer I know!) for the colored Pencil lesson!!
The flower is a Color Me Crazy Floral embellishment. I sponged Memento Dandilion Ink in the center and added a Kaiser Rhinestone. The flower was sponged lightly with Memento Potter's Clay Ink. I added a couple of Foilage Spellbinders and the orange sprigs are the EK Success English Ivy border punch. I used the part that most people throw away after punching a border. This gorgeous paper is Authentique's Blissful Collection sponged with Memento Potter's Clay. I even sponged the Hero Arts Self Adhesive Lace with it.
