Nature at Her Best - Fall Card

I was so glad to finally get to actually 'play' in my scraproom today and not 'work'.  I've had so many projects I needed to do before I could create for fun.  Late Friday night I finished my Workshop On The Go project for my upcoming clubs so that meant Saturday would be play time!  Well..... wait, I had several non-scrapping Saturday To Do's first - like go to grocery, go to post office and shopping. (oh wait - that wasn't on my To Do List but when it's 50% off at Altar'd State - gotta go!)   When I finally sat down to create I seemed to have a creative block!  NOT FUN!!  I don't know why!  I had an entire sheet of challenges that I printed out this morning for inspiration.  It took me a while to get started, but once I tackled one I felt like my mojo was finally flowing.  So now - on to my next challenge!

The challenge at Just Us Girls was a different challenge for me - Use line art image technique.   This technique takes a stamp that you would normally fill in with color but here you just stamp and leave it plain!   Wow... I wasn't sure I could do this.... I have all the new markers that are just begging to be used.   So, I thought this was an interesting technique and I couldn't wait to see what I could do with it.  I think it turned out quite nice!  I made a fall card....

Once again I pulled my Flirty (X7160B) paper pack.  (Oh how I love this paper!).  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  My stamp is Close To My Heart's Fall Harvest (C1504).  For the leaves I inked the stamp in Goldrush and then rolled the edges in Cocoa and New England Ivy.  The acorn was stamped in New England Ivy and Cocoa.   Final touches - Burlap Ribbon (Z1760) and Sparkles - Brown and Tan Assortment (Z1753).

Here is the sketch I used....                                    and the Technique Challenge

Thanks for looking!!!
