Happy Fall Wishes

This is my 2nd post of the day so if you are here for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge, scroll down or click HERE!

I have been itching to color up one of the cute Rhubard images by Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps and since there are few Fall card challenges out there right now, I chose to use the Rhubard Scarecrow digital stamp.  I think he is so sweet!  

I'm hooked on adding some clouds to the background of my image panels after seeing Shannon White  use this technique on her cards.  I've been getting questions on how I do this so let me fill you in.  Just take a strip of card stock and cut one edge into a the shape of rolling clouds to use as your template.  Place it on your image panel and use a sponge dauber to sponge on some ink.  I used SU ballet blue here.  Move the template down a bit and to the side and sponge again.................and repeat until you you've covered your panel.  Easy Peasy!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

The Kraft Journal - Welcome Fall
Sketch 'N Stash - Free Choice Sketch (I chose #64)
Crafty Catz - Autumn
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Stamps:  Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps Rhubarb Scarecrow  Ink:  SU ballet blue  CS:  PTI kraft, dark chocolate, white, and orange zest  DSP:  PTI Autumn Abundance  Accessories:  baker's twine and a PTI dark chocolate button
