My First Interview!

Just a real quick post.. Dana Glass of the Examiner.com National did an interview with me at the end of last week regarding my digital stamps and the TMITA blog and wrote an article. It will be a 2 part article, one showcasing today and I believe the other tomorrow ((I think mainly because I am soo windy)) :O) but anyway... here is it is ((squeeling with delight)) THANKS SO MUCH Dana!! Please check it out it if you want some interesting facts about me, my images and how I think (lol well you might want to bypass the how I think thing!) You can find the article here!

FREE Digital Stamp Image: Autumn Splendor

This weeks challenge over at There's Magic In The Air was to be inspired by a picture in an way. You can stop by TMITA to see it and grab the FREE image as well.

I wanted more of an old fashion feel to my card this week. So I started off by printing my image on vanilla card stock. I colored my image with my colored pencils. I popped up my sunflower on foam dots for dimension as well as my computer generated sentiment and a few leaves. I punched my leaves in the scrap vanilla card stock and then cover them with a copper embossing powder which made them look more medallion like and then I drew on the veins to the leaves. I wish they showed up a little bit better here because they look really lovely and metallic and the ribbon has some metallic copper running through it as well. I also roughen up my edges of my image and sentiment and inked the edges with my colorbox chalks; a light brown. I folder the top right corner over of my image and finished it off with a cute little coppery mini brad and then rolled the same corner over with the green mat.

I look forward to the November images, I think there will be a lot there you will just love. So, in the meantime, create and have a great day!
