Craft Therapy, Part 3

Was fun to use another one of my Stampscapes wood mounted cabin images and a Northwoods wood mount owl.  Stamped them with Black Memento ink. Colored the cabin with Spectrum Noir markers and colored the owl with Prismacolored pencils and white gel pen.

Another fall card to enter into a few challenges. , this one is to enter into the Deep Ocean Challenge, Inspired by a Song/Movie. I used a stamp image from Embossing Arts and printed the scripture sentiment on my computer. The Happy Thanksgiving sentiment is an unmounted stamp with no company name on it.  The song that inspired the card was my dad's favorite- The Autumn Leaves. I think he liked the Frank Sinatra version, but I prefer the one sung by Nat King Cole. You can find it here-

    I love the design of your first card, the owl image in the corner, on a separate piece of paper, looks fabulous. You did an awesome job with the colouring too.
    The autumn card is absolutely stunning. I love the beautiful cascade of leaves... they look fabulous when the card is folded together.
    Your last card is lovely and festive. The candy cane image is very cute and you did a wonderful job on the colouring. I really like the checked background too.
