Indian Corn for Indian Summer
I created them to answer the challenge this week on The Friday Mashup. Their challenge is to create an Indian Summer themed project, or create a project using any three colors from Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, or Early Espresso, or mash-it-up and do both. I decided to mash-it-up.
Immediately when I thought about Indian Summer, I thought about Indian Corn; you know, that multi-colored corn? I pulled out my Spice Cake DSP, which helped me picked my color options of More Mustard, Early Espresso, and Cajun Craze. I made two and I had to switch them up a bit.
I colored the stamp itself using my Stampin' Markers.
Colors: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Old Olive (I know... it wasn't in the challenge, but I don't have a Lucky Limeade marker and the olive looks better with this color mix anyway)
Stamps: Perfectly Preserved
Other: Spice Cake DSP, Cannery Set Framelits, More Mustard grosgrain ribbon, Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon, 2" circle punch, large scallop punch, stampin' dimensionals, lattice embossing folder
I know it's hard to tell from the pictures, but the top two corn cobs are popped up. I didn't put a sentiment on them because I don't know what I want to use them for yet.
Thanks for looking!
