Another reason I will be very happy to have my new crafting space is that I will once again have a computer in my crafting space. I have really missed that, it's hard to watch tutorials or follow detailed directions when the computer is upstairs on one side of the house and the craft room is downstairs, on the opposite side of the house. Sometimes when I sit down to blog, I have forgotten the name of name of a stamp set or a product that I used. Thanks for stopping by!

I haven't had a chance to play along with the challenges at Stamp Something in a while. The challenge this week was to use brown and another color. I chose to use brown and green. I started with this fall image from Whiff of Joy and colored it with Copic markers. I sprinkled some Autumn Flower Soft at her feet to add some color and to finish off the image panel, I used a pale yellow CTMH ink sponged around the image. The green background paper is from DCWV, as are both the tan and brown card stocks. I used a Fiskars border punch for my scalloped border. The ribbon was purchased at Target, they don't carry it anymore though. I really liked that ribbon, it is very soft and makes the prettiest bows and you got a lot of it for around $3.00. This stamp is actually my friend Angela's that she was kind enough to share with me. I haven't bought any of these stamps yet and so she let me try some of hers to make sure I liked coloring them. I love having a stamping friend to share with, not only do we sometimes share supplies but we also share ideas, tips and techniques with each other.
