It’s October blog hop time!

We’re finally coming into my favorite time of year! I love fall. I love the colors. I love the way the air here in Central Virginia begins to get crisp and the clean smell. It’s time for bonfires, sweaters, and roasted marshmallows. 

It’s also time for our Global Stampin Friends Blog Hop number TWO!  So, in honor of this time of year, our theme for the month was actually a color challenge. 

This one was a bit hard for me. Because I didn’t have all of the colors needed, so I improvised a bit. Below are my submissions:

I attempted a water color technique to keep the colors softer. But then didn’t like the way the Real Red was washed out, so I went back and colored it again with markers. I used the Flourishing Phrases stamp set for this one. Black StazOn on Whisper White and then mounted on Basic Black. 

I used the September Paper Pumpkin stamp set to make entry number 2:

I didn’t have Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon, or Cucumber Crush. As hard as I tried, I could not find a way to combine the colors I already had to imitate the colors from the challenge. But I kind of like the way this one turned out anyway. Again the image was stamped with black StazOn on Whisper White cardstock. It was then mounted on our thick Whisper White. The sentiment was done in Early Espresso. And for a bit of pizzazz, I used the twine ribbon to tie together two of the wooden accents from the September Paper Pumpkin kit.
