Autumn Sketch Challenge



I can't help myself, I just get so excited when I sense fall is coming. I love this time of year! So, I was super excited to see the new fall collection of stamps at Serendipity Stamps. Our challenge this week was the perfect choice to help showcase some of these wonderful stamps. The Design Team was instructed to create a card with either an Autumn or Thanksgiving theme and use the sketch below for the design.

I flipped the sketch and then selected this whimsical "Autumn Chair" for my image and paired it with patterned paper from October Afternoon (perfect company for this challenge don't you think?) and Recollections Autumn collection. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the image with Copic markers. I added some fun pom-pom trim and a leaf button for accent.

Check out Amy, Anya, Lynda and Jenny's creations by clicking on their links below. You'll find the entire collection of Serendipity's new fall stamps here. You're going to love them!
