Sweet Stamps Fall

The challenge at Sweet Stamps for this week is Fall.
 Oh my giddy Aunt.....Sweet Stamps is now carrying Dylusions......... and Stencils.....I am having a creative blast!  I love the vivid colors of Dylusions : ) 
  I gingerly spritzed color onto watercolor paper and let it completely dry.  Then, I spritzed water onto the stencil, placed it onto the cardstock wet side down and blotted it.  Once it was completely dry, I placed the stencil exactly over the spot where the shadow was and added a touch of Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.
 I used Distress Markers Dried Marigold, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage photo directly onto the stamp, huffed onto it and stamped it on plain white cardstock.
 For an added accent, I added a Piccolo dragonfly- I am seeing dragonflies all over in the yard, and I decided to use brown in the center of the dragonfly and Mossy Glen on the wings.
Here is a close-up view of the dragonfly with the Enamel Embossing Powder. It does not pick up the shimmer in the EP, but you can see the beautiful color here.
Products I used from the Sweet Stamps Store:
