Autumn Splendor

Yesterday felt more like autumn...today feels more like summer...crazy Michigan weather! Anyways...playing around with some new goodies and here's what I came up with...with inspiration coming from this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.

I'm already in love with the gorgeous new Autumn Meadows Designer paper and the coordinating Autumn Splendor stamp set. I love the colors and the distressed look of the paper and the pretty detail of the stamps...perfect for watercoloring and other techniques.

I stamped the oak leaf image in Basic Brown, cut it out and watercolored it using my aqua painter and Classic inks. The Chocolate Chip card stock behind the leaf image was embossed with the Distressed Texturz Plate. I used a button from the Button Latte collection and attached it with a bit of Hemp Twine.

Thanks for stopping by...have a splendid day!
