Fall with Flourishes

Today I’ve used an image from one of my favorite new stamp sets, A Season of Thanks.   I love the fall and rich warm tones of the season.
DPK_FF_Sep23_2011_wm
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored it with Copics.  It was shaded with a Versa Magic Dew Drop in Wheat while still in the die.  The Spellbinders dies used at Standard Circles large, Lacey Circles, and Fancy Tags Two.  I ran a piece of twill through the tag die and added Kaiser adhesive pearls to the corners of the floral panel.  All of the patterned paper is from the MME All Spice 6x6 pad.   I’m not a die layering kinda girl…I think when other people do it, it looks great, but I’m not so confident.  I was afraid the lacey circle and swirly tag were competing with each other so I kept the embellishments simple.  But then again, I always do, don’t I?  Too safe maybe?  Ah, I’m a simple girl!
All of the talented Flourishes designers have inspiration for you today so pay them a visit and ooh and ahh, 0k?   OK!

Your cards always have such an elegance about them. So rich with color and detail. This one is certainly no exception. As you probably know, Autumn is my most favorite time of year, and these colors appeal to me so much! Hope you and your sweet family are doing well! Best, Curt
