Fs83 A Leaf Load of cardcrazy fun



Congrats to Denise aka cardcrazy todays featured stamper. I love Denise gallery! I cased a this card of hers. I loved the leaves on her card and it gave me a chance to ink up H & M's A leaf load. I love this set! A fun fall set! This little boy looks like hes about to have a blast!LOL! I used Beate wsc56 for my layout.


I colored the image using watercoloring with markers technique. I have to say Im pretty proud of my coloring on this one! Ive tried it before and didnt like the outcome then I realized I was using 90 lb cold press watercolor paper. For best results on this technique 140 lb cold press watercolor paper is needed. I stamped the leaf pile twice to pop it up. Can you believe I actually remebered to use HH on this! Im so proud!LOL!

I dont know about you but Im ready for some fall weather so....to get us fully ready for fall how about some fall blog candy. Its been awhile since Ive given you a chance to get goodies. How about this new A leaf load from H & M?!?! To enter just leave me a comment telling me your fave thing about fall! I love fall its my fave season! As a kid my fave thing about fall meant the fair! I used to love to go to the fair w/my best friend we always had a blast!

Also dont forget to stop by Heathers blog to check out the sketch and color challenge for a chance to win even more goodies! Have a great day!

Fantastic card Shannon! I love your colouring...wow! This is such a fun image...reminds me of how we jumped in leaves as a kid. THAT was fun! We don't see a lot of fall here...it's quick...winter usually starts to set in by Halloween...crazy eh?!

My favorite thing about fall is the cooler weather and the beautiful colors. I especially love the Halloween colors of bright green, orange, purple and black. Fun! Thanks for the chance.

Oh Shannon, this is so pretty! Love the big pile of leaves!! So fun! My favorite part of Fall that I know it will start getting cooler soon (no more over 100 degree days!) Also my b-day is in the fall, so of course it is my favorite time of year...LOL!!
