Come Sit Awhile

Welcome!  I'm here with a card for the latest Fusion challenge and this time I've decided to play only with the photo.

And here's the challenge graphic:

The stamp used on this card is a very old one from MFT Stamps called Inspired by the Front Porch:  Fall.  I think it's from 2012.  I saw it somewhere and then had to go hunting until I found the set and could buy it for myself.  (Yes, I'm a bit obsessive like that - I also bought the Spring version from a different vendor).

I stamped the image onto X-Press It cardstock and colored it with my Copics.  I didn't get too detailed with my coloring as it's a pretty big image but I think it turned out okay.  I then cut a strip off the right hand side and stamped the sentiment vertically in black before clear embossing. 

Onto the colored piece I added a strip of black and white striped patterned paper then backed the panel with fun foam.  I adhered it to a Jellybean Green card base.  I added no embellishments, apart from some clear sparkle pen on the pumpkins and urns of flowers.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Please check out the gorgeous cards made by the rest of the DT and I hope you have time to join us.

What a beautifully detailed card with super colouring. I think you did a wonderful job making the stamp come alive with Autumnal colour x
