new Saturated Canary and new Fabscraps!
Hard to believe that summer is nearly over. Back to school time is here! This weekend has been all about school supplies and new shoes in my house. My soon-to-be third grader is pretty excited!
This is my FIRST fall project of the year! I wait as long as I can every year, because I love summer so much especially all the bright colours.
This little beauty is one of our brand new line, Saturated Canary, that we ordered at CHA Chicago. This is "Autumn". Isn't she sweet? Those of us who took Suzanne Dean's Copic class on hair the other weekend had fun learning some techniques on these cute stamps.
She is stamped on XPress It with Memento ink in Rich Cocoa (my favourite!).
I've inked the edges with some Tim Holtz distress inks (old paper, frayed burlap, brushed corduroy) using the distress tool. I've used my Viva Decor pearl pen in bronze to add some accents.
This paper is some of the many gorgeous new designs from Fabscraps that we ordered at CHA! Their paper is so rich, thick, and just awesome to work with. It was love at first sight!
