Welcome Autumn

Mother Nature doesn't seem to want to "Welcome Autumn", as we've had quite a few warm summer days lately!  I'm looking forward to the leaves changing colors, cooler nights and wearing hoodies! My card this uses the Artistic Outpost Old Grist Mill and Hayride stamp sets.

The image from Old Grist Mill is stamped in Ranger Coffee Archival Ink on a scrap of pattern paper and colored with Watercolor Pencils, then die cut using one of label dies from the 
ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Die set, layering the panel on an Espresso panel that was die cut using the ODBD Custom Vintage Labels Dies. To embellish my card, I added a stamped tag using a sentiment from the Hayride stamp set, stamping on a scrap of pattern paper, die cutting the panel using the smallest tag from the ODBD Custom Recipe Card and Tags Die set.  To further embellish I added Vintage Brown Seam Binding, a button tied with twine, leaves die cut from pattern paper using the ODBD Custom Fall Leaves and Acorn Dies and a border cut from Espresso card stock using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies.

There is still time to enter our Show us your AO Art September Challenge, we would love to see what you have been creating with Artistic Outpost stamps!
