I have just a couple more fall cards for this week and then it's full speed on the Christmas cards. I was growing, perhaps, a little weary of fall colors -- not that I don't love them; they're still a favorite. However, I wanted to work a little more color variety into this one, so I went with purples -- SU's Blackberry Bliss ribbon and Rich Razzleberry designer paper to go with the purple coffee mug.
I started out with the Versamark resist panel -- leaves and wheat stamped in Versamark on glossy cardstock. I let the Versamark dry for a while, then rubbed with saffron and olive inks. Wrapped with ribbon through a die cut ribbon slide, then stitched.
I mixed up three Power Poppy sets:
Colored with Copic markers and applied some much neglected Rain Dots.
And that's it! I'll come back Wednesday when we'll all be super busy getting ready for Thanksgiving. I'm the hostess with the mostest this year. When I was working I'd do my shopping on Tuesday evening and on Wednesday evening I'd bake two pumpkin pies. It's much easier now that I'm retired, thank goodness. Hey! One more thing to be thankful for! Enjoy your day!
