October Stamp of the Month - Autumn Air


I love Fall most of all. Maybe it's because my birthday is this month, maybe it's pumpkin spice everything, and maybe it's the beautifully colored leaves. Whatever it is, I truly do love Fall most of all. So this set is perfect.


If you didn't start this Blog Hop here, you should have come from Darlys' blog. If you get lost, head over to Melinda's blog for a full list of participants. There are almost thirty participants this month (it seems I'm not the only one who loves Fall), so be sure you get all the way around to see the wonderful inspiration.


My upline does a weekly color challenge. Last week it was Ballerina. That's not a color we usually associate with Fall, but I love how this turned out. The other colors here are Ruby and Canary. I wanted my Ruby to have a light touch, so I applied it to my stamp using a sponge dauber, concentrating a little more color around the edges. I inked the thin leaf in Canary and sponged Ruby around the edges. The Ballerina leaves are straight stamping. The small font of the sentiment is stamped in Ruby, the large was embossed with Gold powder. It's tough to see them, but I added dots of Liquid Glass around the sentiment to look like dew drops. I thought about adding sequins, but I really liked how the Liquid Glass looks.

Now you're off to Kathy's blog. Again, be sure to hop all the way around.

Until next time,
Becca
