Fall beauties!

Today I got a few new stamps and I couldn't wait to try them out! I need to make some cards for my pastors at church. So I thought I would use my new stamps and paper.
I am going to make 4 of the same card. Here is the finished project.

Scarecrow Fun

I started with a A2 base of Creme card stock. I then added Doubledots Designs -burnt orange vintage as my main background. The strip of stripped paper is by Paradise - earth tones. My stamps are made by a company called Mostly Animals. They are now out of business. But I found these on sale at a local scrapbooking shop. The stamps are simply named Scarecrow and Corn Stalks.

To create the look with the scarecrow, I used a paper mask. That is where you stamp the image onto thin paper. Then cut as close as you can all the way around. This is your mask. I stamped the scarecrow then covered him with the mask. I then inked up my stalks and lightly stamped them once on scrap paper. After I stamped the stalks onto my card paper, it gave me this great faded look. Also the mask made them appear to be behind the scarecrow. 

To finish him and the stalks off, I just got out my trusty Crayola colored pencils! I really like colored pencils! I have a large bucket of them. Most of which I have had since I was a girl. 
I inked the edges of my image and my card. The inks used were Stampabilities pigment ink in Sable and Stampin' Up in Hello Honey.
