Goodbye Summer

>> Thursday, September 21, 2017


Wouldn't you know, that as soon as I embrace the cooler fall weather we get a flashback of summer!  Hasn't been ridiculously hot, but lots and lots of humidity - yuck!  So for now I'm just staying inside in air conditioned comfort and stamping myself some fall :)

I started my card by stamping our new Pumpkin Patch image on white card stock.  I masked the small pumpkin on the right so I could stamp our Autumn Leaf Pile behind it.  There's already some grass on the pumpkin patch image so I used our Easy Grass Background to finish the rest of the "lawn".  Once all the stamping was finished I did all the coloring (except the sky) with watercolor pencil/marker combo (the leaf pile was so easy to color - I put a little red pencil in a few leaves, then a few green and a few orange as well, then colored the whole thing with a yellow alcohol marker) then masked both images and sponged in the sky.  I finished stamping by adding our new Goodbye Summer greeting using black ink.

Thanks for stopping by,

Sue, this is a wonderful card - such a great scene full of Fall colors with a hint of the end of Summer in the grass. Love the leaf pile with the pumpkins. We have had the same here - a touch of Fall and then the warmer weather popped back in for its last hurrah (I hope). Great card.

Oh this definitely makes me want to fall into fall (card making and all otherwise too!) Love the pile of different colored leaves! I hope I have that (I can't remember!)I am going into my craft room right now!
Beautiful fall card!

This is so pretty, Sue! I love the brilliant blue sky w/ the fall colors of the pumpkin & leaves. Sigh...I wish fall would hurry up!
