TS16 Indian Summer card



This week's challenge on the Truly Scrumptious blog is to use the sketch and a minimum of 3 stamps, not including the sentiment. Oh my...... 3 stamps?? I put on my thinking cap, and of course, silhouettes came to mind immediately.

I pulled out my Cornish Heritage Farms Nature Silhouettes set, and started stamping. I used the fern, the flowers, the leaves, the dragonfly, and the butterfly stamps, in addition to the sentiment.

To make my stamped image coordinate with the background paper, I sponged Curry, Tango Tangerine, and Melon Mambo wiht just a hint of Chocolate Chip around the edges. Isn't that reminiscent of a brilliant fall sunset? :-)


Stamps: Nature Silhouettes (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Curry, Tango Tangerine, Melon Mambo
CS: Chocolate Chip, Vanilla, Curry, Indian Summer Basic Grey dsp
Other: sponge, flowers, buttons, branch punch, leaves punch, nestabilities, Chocolate Chip ribbon
