Fall fun....

Hello, and Happy Monday!
I have a bit of 'fall fun' to share with you today.

First up is a card that I made for a challenge at The Outlawz.  
The CAS Challenge this week is to use limited fall colors.  
We were to choose 3 colors to use, from Red, Brown, Yellow, Green, and Orange.

Hero Arts: #K5574 Big Eyes, Amuse Ink: French Roast, Kaliedacolor Ink: used only orange, sorta blended the brown and orange for the leaves.

I used Brown, Orange, and Yellow for my card.
I sponged on the yellow, orange, and finally brown inks, directly onto the stamp, then turned the stamp over and stamped directly onto patterned paper from last year's DCWV Autumn Mat Stack Pad.
Using a Spellbinder's die, I cut out and embossed the owl, adhered it to my card front, and used a brown Sharpie marker to 'stitch' around the edges.

Looking at this on the screen, I think I will 'stitch' around this too - looks a bit bare :)

For the inside, I used the piece of DP that the owl was cut from, and just put some white CS behind it.

Now, onto project(s) two through thirty!

A couple of years ago, I had seen a Frankenstien like this on-line someplace.  I don't know if it was someone's blog, SCS, or in a magazine, but I sketched out the basics and stuck it in my notebook. So, I sincerely apologize for not being able to give rightful credit!  If you are the original creator of this cutie patootie, let me know, and I will edit this post immediately!

Anyway, I created thirty of these to send to my DD's workplace. Hopefully, they will brighten up the office for a day or two.  What's fun is that their office is so cool - their color is this bright green!  So Frankie will fit in just perfectly.

Hope your week is a good one! It's a beautiful, fall day, here in Missouri!
Thanks for stopping by,
Patti J.

LOVE the idea of stamping your multi-colored owl onto patterned paper. It looks awesome. And how fun you used your negative diecut inside. The brown Sharpie stitching would look great inside too. And your Frankencutie bags are just that - TOTALLY cute!
