Hope you are enjoying what is left of Summer!  My pneumonia is slowly going away.  I promise to get some fun YouTube tutorials up soon!  

Fall will be here before you know it, so I decided to pull out some Fall colors of Distress Oxides and my Hero Arts "Grateful Leaves" stamp set.  (The supplies are linked (afil) below.  I really appreciate it when you use them and the links on the right side:)  Thank you!!!)

This month's "A Blog Named Hero" Challenge" is to Stretch Your Stamps!  This leaves set is a color layering one, but I only used the "bottom" one (without any detail.)  I used several Distress Oxides and inks, by applying and blending them with daubers on my stamp to get a "blendy" look.  This was on watercolor paper as I originally intended to watercolor.

Then I sprayed with Shimmer Mist and that kinda made the background "fade back."  I flicked gold ink to liven it up a bit.  I used coordinating card stock.  The base is cut from an 8.5 x 11" sheet on the diagonal.  Next, I scored one corner at 4.25 and the opposite at 5.5"

This is how the fold looks.

I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the orange mat, cut on diagonal and adhered to base.  Then used a smaller stitched rectangle to cut background.  I cut that on the diagonal and adhered.  

Next I used a Pretty Pink Posh stitched leaf die in the card base color, then daubed on some gold and red ink.  I stamped the sentiment in red.

I hope you will join the challenge and maybe win a prize in the drawing!  

Here are the supplies I used:

Have a great week and I will be back soon!
