The Colors of Fall

Hey y'all, happy Wednesday!!  Well, it's time for another Digistamps 4 Joy challenge.  Here in the US Fall is fast approaching.  It's sad to say goodbye to Summer...but I must admit that Fall is my favorite seasons.  It has my favorite weather (a nice, even temperature, little humidity, and little SNOW), my birthday, and my favorite holiday (Halloween).

To get us ready for the season, we want to see some projects showing the colors of Fall!  Now, you don't necessarily need to use a Fall image, just the colors.  Here's a photo for some inspiration:

Isn't that pretty?  =)

I used the adorable Monster...Dude.  When I printed him, I realized he was throwing up the horns.  (I don't know how I missed that the first time!)  When I saw that, I just knew I had to do a rock-music-inspired project.  I decided to create a bookmark for my husband's guitar books.  I used papers from Bo Bunny's Zoology pack, and colored the image with Copics.  The red cardstock was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder, then shaded with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  The "Rock" sentiment is from Die Cuts With a View's Rock Queen Chipboard Embellishments pack.  I took the first picture using one of my hubby's guitar books, set to one of my favorite rock songs...Iron Man.  =D

Now that you've seen my project, head on over to the Digistamps 4 Joy challenge blog and see what the rest of the team has created.  I hope to see you play along with us this fortnight!  

Thanks for stopping by.  =D

I am so totally loving this bookmark. Your choice of colors and dp really made this little fellow stand out. He does have that devilish glint in his trying to tell the hubby something? lol
