Guest Designing for the CAS - Fall Scarecrows!


Hi friends!

Happy Monday!

Mondays tend to get a bad wrap, I know, 

but it's also a promise of a blessed new week!

Today's card is one I'm SuPeR excited to share

as I'm the first Guest Designer for the CAS challenge at Splitcoaststampers!


I chose a theme last month of "Fall Scarecrows" as this time of year, 

it seems fun to celebrate the softer side of fall ...nothing scary, 

just the sweetness of autumn :)

My Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest got to come out and play again ~

only this time it's on scaled down version.

I started with a panel of blended distress oxides in 

Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade and

 blended with the Taylored Expressions blending brushes.

I cut out a circle in accent opaque white #120 cardstock using a 

stitched circle from Simon Says Stamp.

Once it was behind the circle cut out, I glued it down and quickly tucked in

the scarecrow and then added the crow/sunflowers.

          I didn't use watercolors on this card (photo above is from this card)

instead, I used the copic markers.

This card is just dreamy and again, I just love it!

This is definitely one of my favorite fall stamp sets.

Here's a final look ... taken at sunset :)

                                         Thanks for stopping by!

Big hugs, bigger blessings :)
