Magnolia Stamp Lovers welcomes Autumn

As September draws closer so do the colors of Autumn. Reds, oranges, yellows, greens and browns. I love this time of year with all of the trees changing colors, the cool brisk air and the rustle beneath your feet while walking on leaves.
I’ve had these stamps for awhile but this is the first time I have actually inked them up and colored them. I know, shame on me, but crafting time is at a premium right now so I haven’t had a lot of time to ‘play’.

A close up of this adorable couple.

I colored my images with the following Copics:
  • Skin – E13, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R22, R21, R20
  • Hair – E35, E33, E50
  • Dress – R29, R24, R22
  • Pants – B99, B97, B95, B93, B91
  • Trellis – E25, E53, E41
  • Grass and flower leaves – YG97, YG95
I masked my images using Loving Couple and Wedding Arch.  My sentiments are Magnolia’'s Loving Wishes and Happy Anniversary from the new SWL  Congratulations set.

On the arch I used Ultra Fine Strawberry Flower Soft. I just love this stuff!!
