This September Progressive Challenge on Cute As A Button FB page features a wonderful image named “Thankful.” I cropped the image, allowing a portion to go off the edge of the page so that I could also enter the card into the current Power Poppy challenge, especially since I used the sentiments from the Power Poppy digi set named “Autumns Opulence.” I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen and added extra color with some lovely ribbon I picked up at Hobby Lobby last week (for 50% off!) To add texture to the card, I used some burlap from my stash and some greenery that I picked up at the local Goodwill a while ago. I loved its rich hunter green color and the soft fuzzy feel of the fronds. So fun!

My final card in this posting was created for the Spectember Day 17 Challenge named Create a Scene. I immediately thought of my Stampscaped collection, which I don’t use very often anymore since I prefer digis, but they are PERFECT for creating scenes. I combined three of the images on my wood mount stamps: “Lakeside Cabin”(main section) “Pines and Rocks” (tops of pines on the right side) and “Spruce” (large tree on the left side.) When digging for my stamps, I found some photos I’d taken of clouds that I felt might make n using my Stampscapes. I stamped the images with black Memento ink, then added color to the cabin, water and trees with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I didn’t expect the markers to react with the glossy photo paper as they did, causing them to bleed. But… once the colors dried, I decided I really liked the hazy feeling of the scene. So… I decided to finish the card! Added a few layers of cardstock matting, a bit of raffia and a sticker from my scrapbook stash.
