Sept. pages and cards

I LOVE FALL!! I love the crisp cool nights, and of course the cooler days :) When I seen the stamp sets C1504 Fall Harvest,S1209 Fall Favorites,  and the Z1760 Burlap Ribbon I knew I wanted to make a page with my customers to welcome Fall!! I used the Flirty and Moonlight paper packets. Stamped the images on Cocoa with Cocoa ink as well as a couple on Colonial White paper to "Quick Color"  for adding some Fall colors!  To color out line images you can stamp and cut a stencil out, then using the stencil sponge the color of ink you want onto the stamped images! FUN, QUICK and EASY way to color in those stamped images..... The ink colors I used are Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta, Olive, New England Ivy, Cranberry, Ruby, and Cocoa.
 For the cards this month I used the Darling pumpkin from the SOM and colored them in with Autumn Terracotta, and Olive. Accenting with a little bit of the burlap ribbon and a thin layer of the Awesome Green Glitter Gel on the Stems, Grass and Vines to add that little finishing touch!! I hope you can join me to create these fun pages / cards this month!! For more information please feel free to call or email me :)
I have had a couple of questions on how to color the leaves?
  I stamped the image on a piece of photo paper and cut it out. That makes a stencil for you to use to color the leaves! Stamp your image on your paper then lay the stencil over the top of the stamped image. Sponge your lighter color on the leaf, then taking a different color sponge from the outside of the stencil in towards the center of the leaf making the outer edge darker and fading into the center....I then took the same color of maker as the outside color and traced on the inside edge of the stamped image....

 I hope this makes sense I am not the best at explaining things without showing the technique...
Happy Scrapping!!
