Happy Monday!  I've been seeing so many Halloween cards lately and so I thought it was time for me to make a fall themed card.  My mother in law found me a box full of rubber stamps at a yard sale this past summer and this stamp was inside the box.  Isn't it cute?  It's called Country Scarecrow and it's made my Stampede.  Below is a photo of my image after I was finished coloring it.  I tried to make it similar to the stamp's index sheet.



Here is a photo of the markers I used to color my image.  It really took me a long while to figure out how to color nicely with my SU markers.  They aren't like copic markers, but they work pretty well.  I used the following colors for my image:  Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Brocade Blue, Creamy Caramel, and Chocolate Chip.  One of these days I will show a tutorial on how I do my coloring (I couldn't do it today because the kids were home from school today due to Columbus Day).


And here is a picture of my finished card.  My background is embossed using my pumpkin harvest embossing folder.  My ruby red card stock was crimped using my paper crimper.  I added dots along the border of my pumpkin pie card stock and of course my image was stamped using black stazon and colored using my SU markers.  My sentiment is from SU's Happy Fall Y'all.


Thanks for stopping by!  I have to run and finish up some laundry.  It seems as though I'm always doing laundry especially with a teenager in the house!  See you tomorrow!
