German Phrase of the Day: Herbst kommt. = Fall is coming. And with it, all the wonderful rich earthy tones that I love! I realize it's still a little ways off (further where I'm going!) but it will be here before we know it.
I used a color combo I found online (sorry, can't remember where) for this card, and decided to do a little color blocking as well. The 2 Close to Cocoa pieces are stamped with the flannel plaid background, the Really Rust piece with Paisley and the Certainly Celery piece with Aida cloth. But...it's the main image I love the most. Isnt' she just the cutest?? Sophia is busy raking up the leaves, probably so she and Cooper can jump in them. I know my brother used to rake all our leaves together and we'd jump in together. It was great fun!
I colored Sophia with my Aquapainter and WWC for this card since I don't have many earthy Prismacolor pencils yet...guess I'm gonna have to fix that soon! This Falling For You Sophia will be going out to all Stamp of the Month subscribers in September. She won't be available for purchase from the Paper Pretties Boutique though until October...so if you want her soon you'd best sign up! And don't forget to tell Christie I sent ya. I totally love this Sophia since she reminds me of my falls growing up in Maine. Fall in California just isn't quite the same. Oh well!
Have a wonderful day everyone...and I'll be back with my last post from Germany tomorrow.
