Just Us Girls #205 - Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  Time for a new challenge from Just Us Girls.  This week is our sketch challenge and the ever talented Vicki created this great sketch that can be interpreted any way you want!

I was in a very fall mood today.  It's chilly and rainy here in Buffalo, NY and I am in my fleece top and sweats!  Ah, fall!  Love it!  It's just a great day to chill and stamp, which is what I did.  It was a busy week with school starting and getting up at 5:00 everyday (and sometimes earlier).  I had to wait until this afternoon to create my challenge card(s).

I was thinking about this Tim Holtz stamp set called Mini Blueprints last week and thought I'd pull it out to create some fall cards.  The first one is a leaf I colored with copics and added some Wink of Stella shimmer to.  I added some tea dye and vintage photo distress inks on the image when it was still in the die.  The background paper is from Fall Prints and Patterns by Papertrey Ink.  I added some texture to the paper with Tim Holtz's new stencils.  I used burlap with scattered straw ink and stripes with tea dye ink.  

On this one, the acorn was also colored with copics and some Wink of Stella shimmer was added to it.  I used the same pattern paper and this time used dotted fade stencil with vintage photo ink then stripes stencil with wild honey ink.  This card could definitely fit in the masculine category!
