613 Avenue Create #99-Anything Goes-Option Use Subway Art

Our newest Anything Goes Challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option to Use Subway Art. Subway Art stamps have been around for quite some time, but you know me, I'm always late trying trends. I've had this CTMH stamp for over a year, and never used it. It's perfect for this challenge and time of year:

It's hard to see in the photo, but the image background is actually colored tan.  I used a Spectrum Noir Marker to roughly color the white card stock.  I like the look - it's uneven and gives the paper a textured appearance. I used CTMH Chocolate ink on the stamp. The leaves are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with SN markers.  I fussy cut them and outlined the edges in black. I added a few sequins for a finishing touch.

I'm entering these challenges:  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge:  Thanks/Thanksgiving; Mema's Crafts November Challenge:  Anything Goes; Stamplorations November Challenge - Stamps and Layers; and Paula Holifield Crafts - Clean and Simple.

Have a wonderful week!

  5. Like the way you colored the tan background with the spaces Sheila... really enhances the depth, as does the brown printed Subway Art and then the black border on top. The sequins are a nice touch to the 'falling' leaves.
