Autumn Candlelight

I really like this simple card. The focal image is a Lockhart stamp I purchased from Ellen Hutson's store. It was her stamp of the month for October. I couldn't wait to ink it and color it in. I have been using the Aqua Painter brushes and ink right from the stamp pads lately and I am liking this technique more and more. If you are not familiar with this, you just squeeze the SU stamp pads a few times while they are CLOSED. Then use your waterbrush to pick up your color and paint your image. It makes shading easy. Just start with the lightest color and work to the darkest. This is SU Kraft cardstock, an olive green twill tape, and the sentiment is stamped in Always Artichoke and is from theThankful Thoughts stamp set.
