IB36 Fall Picnic

Happy Thursday, all!  It's time for another Inspired By challenge, and we have a sponsor this week! (And there might just be a prize involved too!)  Reverse Confetti has some gorgeous fall sets coming out and I was fortunate enough to receive Fall Foliage to play with!  I do have some of their dies, but this is the first stamp set I think I've gotten from them!  I paired it with some beautiful papers from Amber Moon by Prima:

And here is our prompt!  I chose the colors, particularly the golden sweater as well as the mug (which has cables on it, but is hard to see) as my inspiration:

The images in the set are bold outline images, but I thought I would try my hand at doing a no-line coloring technique, so I stamped them in Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink, then watercolored them with various fall shades and fussy-cut them out!  To make them stand out even more, I highlighted the leaves with a Wink of Stella pen...they are gorgeous, and it's a shame the photo doesn't capture how pretty they are!  I also stamped some smaller images directly on the top of the Amber Moon paper, lightly coloring them as well with some ink!

I stamped the sentiment directly on the paper as well, in Cajun Craze ink, then mounted it on a piece of PTI's Rustic White cardstock that was embossed with the Cable Knit EF:

I mounted everything on a Cajun Craze card and added some burlap ribbon and linen thread to finish it off!  Both the leaves and the papers are beautiful!  

I hope you'll check out what the other designers did at the IB blog....and then gear up for some fall stamping!  You might be a winner!

Mommy did up Cassidy's hair so pretty!  Occasionally, she lets down her tomboy guard and allows some femininity in! 

She was also excited to show off her new earrings!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
