Gnome Blessings

Hi friends! I'm popping in today with a fun autumn card featuring a couple of products from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps August release. This summer I decided to invest in an assortment of Ciao Copic markers that I could travel with. It's been a highlight of the summer for me, since I spend several hours a week sitting outside while the boys attend tennis lessons. It makes the time go by a little faster and all that practice seems to be improving my coloring skills! Win, win.  I have always used sketch markers, but my achy hands really enjoy the smaller barrel of the ciao, so that's been a blessing. And since football starts up as soon as tennis ends, my coloring time won't be dwindling anytime soon!

I thought this image from Autumn Gnomes went perfectly with the sunflower inspiration photo for the August challenge in the SNSS VIP group on Facebook. I kept the yellow, green, and brown, and added in a bit of orange and red to complete an autumn palette. His little sign is so cute, and I picked out a sentiment from the previously released Leaf Silhouettes set to stamp on it.  I finished the image with a crow resting atop the sign, then a light blending of antique linen around the edges so it wasn't so stark white.

The background is done with the GORGEOUS new Fall Leaves Stencil. I just randomly sponged the leaves with a selection of autumn colors, then sponged all over with antique linen. A few dark roast mats and a little more antique linen on the card base and this sweet card was finished.

Thanks so much for stopping by! We'd love it if you'd join in the fun and enter a card or two in the August VIP challenge. The group is free to join, and we just ask that you use at least one SNSS product on your challenge entry. There's always a digital freebie for those who don't have any of our stamps yet, and this month's freebie is a super fun autumn printable. A winner is randomly selected from the entries each month to win a $10 gift code to the shop. Hope to see you in the group!
