Autumn Leaves ...

Good morning and Happy Friday! I'm back with some more inspiration for this months Your Next Stamp FUN Friday Challenge #5.

Today's card features the adorable Autumn Leaves Digital Stamp available in the YNS Store under the category YNS Digital Stamps. I love that YNS Digital Stamps are available for immediate download.

I used the Inspiration Photo for this week project. Autumn Leaves was colored with my Copic Markers, and once again I paper-pieced part of of stamp. My grand-dog Winston is black/white, and he was not far from my thoughts while coloring the adorable puppy in this image. I went with black/grey since I haven't mastered the black/white combo yet. Distress inks were used for the sky background.

Here is a look at the Copic Markers I used ...
