Harvest Bounty

I won this beautiful Stampin Up set called 'Season of Thanks' on Ebay a while ago, I even colored it a few times, but I never got around to making a card because I lost them! This is why I usually FORCE myself to finish a card immediately, not allowing myself to start coloring a new image until I'm done. This is particularly hard if I happen to get a new package of goodies in the mail, which is most likely what happened with this stamp set. ;-)

These types of images take a looooong time to color, all the tiny little details and objects, but they are so worth it. I love the end result. The rest of the card is very simple, minimal embellishments, so nothing competes with the detailed stamp. I usually have a hard time not doing this, I love adding bows, bling, or other embellishments!
Thanks for looking!

  1. So glad you left the embellies to a minimum on this one. That is one FABULOUS coloring job!! Maybe you need a special, designated spot for your colored images when finished, like my living room, where they won't get lost. teehee!
