Apples and Pumpkins!

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the Autumn season and you know who is around the corner, right? Today is World Card Making Day, so what a great day to start off a new challenge,  "Use A Mask or Stencil" at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, chosen by the lovely Ellie. Be sure to stop by an check out all the fabulous art my DT Sisters have for you. There is a prize from Flonzcrafts, the FSC sponsor and a Top 3 selection and you never know when you might be spotlighted, so come on and join in!
It is that time of year for Hayrides, Apples and Pumpkins and cooler weather and I don't know about you, but I am ready for it! This year's heat just did me in! Working with Artistic Outpost's "Hayride" collection, I stamped the background panel using Archival Olive on vanilla card stock, heat set and then colored in the leaves with Shabby Shutters. Then I inked over the entire panel using Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, water flicks and shaded with Vintage Photo and further distress the edges. Taking this card over to Frilly and Funkie's "Colors of Autumn."
The frame was stamped in Archival Sepia and then clear embossed. The sweet little kids were also stamped in Sepia, heat set and watered colored with Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose, and Frayed Burlap. The kids were masked and then the background inked with Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw and then flicked with water and Distress Stains of Vintage Photo and Peeled Paint.
The sign was stamped in Brushed Corduroy and cut and lightly inked with Antique Linen and Peeled Paint, before the words were stamped in Black Archival and clear embossed.
The Apple Basket stamp was colored using Distress Markers, Barn Door, Weathered Wood and Tea Dye. I did add a little color using Vintage Photo to white card stock prior to stamping where the basket would be, to give more of a wood look.

Well that it is for today and I do thank you for stopping by!

Your card totally reminds me of times gone by. Shabby, pumpkins, hayrides everything from a bygone era. The signpost looks so authentic and the little kid beside it has the sweetest smile.
