Sweet N Sassy Autumn stroll blog hop

This month sweet n sassy stamps is featuring our Autumn stamp sets and digis for the blog hop. I decided to use the Autumn blessings set for my cards today. I used this week's sweet stop sketch for my first card that I have to share.



I stamped the leaf with dark chocolate palette ink onto watercolor paper and used my ink pad and aquapainter to watercolor it. It has been a long time since I have done watercoloring! I pierced around the image to accent it.

Supplies:
stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Autumn blessings
CS- watercolor paper, chocolate chip, SU confetti white, basic grey mellow dp
accessories/tools- Martha Stewart doily lace punch, chocolate grosgrain, brown pearls, paper piercer




I stamped the beautiful leaf image with versamark ink onto cryogen white and embossed with copper embossing powder. The copper metallic ribbon was showcased by scoring 3 lines both above it and below it.

Supplies:
stamps- SNSS Autumn blessings
CS- Paper temptress cryogen white, jellybean green, and copper metallic
accessories- copper ribbon, scor-pal, marvy scallop corner punch, copper ep, rhinestones


If this was your first stop on the blog hop then you will want to go back and start on the SNSS blog so you don't miss anything. Otherwise, your next stop today is Nancy and she has a wonderful project to share with you.

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your autumn stroll!
