Doesn't that sound like fun this weekend? I am hoping to get some more coloring in but we will see. The boys have a game tonight so we will be in the stand cheering and exhausted by tomorrow. ha ha  Last week's game was a non league game so the loss doesn't count. I all that our preseason game. We are now in the regular season so this game will count. Which is good they got all the jitters out last week. hee hee Anyways....  

Since this was a color challenge I thought I would give it a try and print these Apples in Season in Sepia instead of black. Adds a softer color feel I think. Colored with various Copic markers and scored a simple border around the edge. Added a gingham layer to the base and finished it off with some sparkles and enamel dots. Voila!  Don't forget these puppies are on sale along with four others digi's! Happy Stamping!

Cindy Lawrence said...

Yes, it definitely adds a softer feel...warm, soft, and pretty! Love the yellow gingham framing it as well...really makes the apples pop! Beautifully done, my friend!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh! Love those golden apples and the sepia gives your image a whole other look. It's beautiful! With the gingham surrounding it and those pretty yellow enamel dots -- perfect! Nothing more cheerful than yellow!

Allison Cope said...

Oh they good enough to eat Stacy! Love your sepia beauty!

Oh, Stacy, I LOVE your card, and I love that you've used the sepia for the image. It's amazing what a softer feel it has. And what a beautiful way to finish your cards that I love to score the edges. I think we tend to rely too much on dies, but I love the simplicity of scoring, and you know I admire your enamel dots. Love the gingham to match your Golden Delicious apples! Hugs, sweet friend, and enjoy your fun-filled weekend! You are such an amazing mom!!! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
