Mary's color this week speaks "Autumn". Made a birthday card for my brother, from a new stamp. We were raised on a dairy farm, so it will remind him of our younger days. Stamped, embossed and colored with the inkpads and paint brush. Stippled the trees with a scruffy brush, and added wink of stella. Added white with my ink. embossed bg and scored to make a border. Everything is going well, until it was time to write the sentiment. One problem with dip pens and inks, they sometimes bleed. I was not going to start over so took a copic fine liner and outlined the sentiment. It worked. TFL

What a gorgeous autumn scene! I love the colors you chose, particularly on the treetops. And wow! That sentiment turned out gorgeous. I was certain it was one of the scripty stamps that are popular nowadays. How amazing that you wrote it yourself! You have beautiful penmanship (even if the pen bled). :)

Wow, Linda, this is gorgeous and definitely does speak autumn in this stunning scene brought alive by your coloring artistry. And I love the sentiment outlined. I often think our mistakes turn out even better. Beautiful and stunning, my friend, and I love your new stamp. Hugs!
