Here in San Antonio we’ve had record high temperatures. 110 degrees on Sunday! Unbelievable! All this heat has made me wish for autumn. Cooler mornings and days is what everyone in San Antonio is wishing. I can’t wait. Later this week the temperature should drop to 90 degrees which will be wonderful. So much for the weather and on to my project. Wanting for autumn to arrive I decided this would be my inspiration for this week’s card for Hand Stamped Sentiments Monochromatic Theme Challenge. I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Autumn Splendor to create the leaves for an autumn wreath. I stamped the leaves with Versamark and Cajun Craze then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. To add more color to the leaves I used my blender pen with Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Calypso Coral.
