Color challenge

The Color Challenge on The Outlawz this week was to use Sand Dune Pink, Dusty Cream, and Desert Brown. The twist was to make it vintage. I stamped the images with brown ink and popped up the center stamp. I added the key in the upper corner. Amazing what you can find in your stash!


The Monday Greetings Challenge on The Outlawz was Pumpkins. Of course there needs to be greeting on the card. Found this stamp in my stash, thinking it has been a long time since I have used it. Colored with copics with a bit of glossy accents on the leaves. 

In the Cornfield

The Saturday Paper Ala Mode Challenge was "In the Cornfield." It needed to be something you might find in a cornfield. My pumpkin patch is a Hero Arts stamp. I popped up severa leaves and flowers in it.
