Acorn Dress

While I had my fall papers and pencils out the other day coloring my scarecrow card, I decided to color some additional fall images. I love the fall color palette more than just about any other I think.  I started with this great stamp from Lockhart Stamps and then colored it with Prismacolor pencils. This was the first stamp that I picked out on that shopping trip, I just love it because it is a little different. There are several of stamps in this style, using flowers, vegetables and other items, but the two autumn ones are my favorite. After coloring the image, I looked through my papers to find these from DCWV. To do something a little different I wanted to make my colored image look like it is a painting hanging on the wall. I added some sheer ribbon and a great decorative brad from Making Memories. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for visiting!
