Autumn Sketch

Now it's time to feature some Mischief Makers at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  The sketch this week is by the amazing papercrafter (and a bow-tying magician) Jeanne Jachna!



I decided to sneak in an autumn card before the Christmas bonanza begins!  Used the saltbox house and sentiment from Blessed by You and two Teeny Trees.  The paper is from the Simple Stories "Generations" collection...such beautiful patterns and colors in that one.


The house was stamped with chocolate ink and then clear embossed.  Added some Sakura glaze pen to the leaves on the trees and a few that were scattered along the bottom.

Upload your creation with the sketch HERE by next Friday, November 2.  If you use at least 1 Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your project, you will be eligible to win a WMS set of choice.

Have you been watching Claire's blog?  She is showcasing some sneak peeks for the upcoming November release, yippee!

Supplies:
Stamps: Blessed by You, Teeny Trees, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  Simple Stories "Generations," PTI Kraft and Rustic White cardstock
Ink:  Fresh Ink in Honey, Chocolate, and Merlot, and Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink
Other:  Hero Arts ultra fine clear embossing powder, Sakura glaze pen, twine, button

I love the warm feel of this, Kelly, and am with you on autumn! It feels like we go from summer to Halloween and then straight to Christmas. I miss seeing wonderful fall colors in crafting projects so yours was a big hit for me today! :)
