Paper Craftin with Erica

Fall Sweetness

Fall is upon us (which is my absolute FAVORITE season) and I just had to make something with my new Thanksgiving Sweeties stamp set from The Angel Company.  It's supposed to be a center-piece for the end table, but I can't use it for that…. because my cats would love it too much.  Anyway, I used the back of a small picture frame (the baseboard with the "stand" attached) and covered it with Winchester paper. 


I then sanded the edges and covered it with glossy Mod Podge.  I sprayed the faux leaves with Sheer Shimmer Spritz (my new best friend) and adhered them with my hot glue gun.  I used crackle accents on the shoes to give them a "weathered" look.  Copics used: YG95, YG97, YR15, YR16, W3, W6, E21, E25, E27, E29. E97, E99.  I also used  Garnet and Pitch Black Copic Spica Glitter Pens (for the hat and bonnet ribbon).


I hope everyone is enjoying this FABULOUS season.  It's gorgeous out here in Wisconsin.  We've had some chilly days, but we've also had 70 degree weather… awesome for Wisconsin.  I'll be back soon with some Halloween Creations!  **HUGS**

    Very cool! I have to agree about the cats, mine would have a ball with the leaves!
