Growing up my favorite colors were yellow and orange. In fact, I used to love to wear yellow because people would always say I looked good in that color! (boy, has it been a LONG time since anyone said I looked good in anything! haha!)
Anyway, this week's challenge to the Angels Landing Design Team was right up my alley! Use the colors of autumn. I chose this image from the Autumn Tweetings set, and printed it on Neenah ivory paper. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS, adding a bit of glitter pen.
Layering was easy! Just layered the image on orange and yellow. You can barely tell, but I used a Fiskars embossing plate to dry emboss the bottom orange layer. I had purchased these plates a few years ago when I got back into stamping to be used with this hand held doo-hickey for dry embossing...boy that did NOT work! So I tried them out in my BigShot and they work just as well as the Stampin Up embossing plates. I like the subtle effect!
and that ribbon was from my stash; I had purchased it because I love the colors!
Inside I printed a sentiment from the same set, and layered it on yellow and orange as well. I really love these colors!!
