Scarecrow on a Fence

Good evening! I pulled out some of my fall stamps to play with the other day. This is one of the stamps that I bought at Papertrix after the Coloring Pencil Technique class with Karen Lockhart. My Mom was with me that day shopping after the class, I bought several stamps that day, things that I thought I would enjoy coloring, including this one. Then my non-stamping Mom bought several more just because she liked them! Of course there were no complaints from me on that! I love scarecrows from some reason, stamps and decorations. I love the fall season, I think that has something to do with it. My card tonight uses a stamp from Lockhart stamps stamped with Memento ink and then colored with Prismacolor pencils. I used s scalloped edge punch from fiskars on the brown DP, but that detail doesn't show up in the picture as well as it did in person. The flower is from Jo-Ann's, the button is from Making Memories, papers are DCWV and the twine is just from this giant roll that sits on my desk!

Great Card. The colors of the fall season is not something we get to enjoy here in Southwest Florida but it is a good time of year because the hot humid weather finally does break. I do love fall cards though and yours is perfect. Enjoy your new stamps.
