Autumn Chinese Lanterns

Today I'm sharing a fall card made with Power Poppy's Chinese Lantern Digital Stamp Set.

I printed my image on Kraft Cardstock and colored it with Prismacolor Pencils.  It looked a little plain, so I added a background with a script stamp and some walnut stain distress ink.

I love the vintage/rustic look the distressed (and inked) edges give the finished piece. Inside I added a piece of Washi Tape and a sentiment (from Power Poppy) that I reversed for a chalkboard look.

Supplies and tools:
Chinese Lanterns Digi (Power Poppy), Prismacolor Pencils, Script Stamp (Stampin' Up), Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Sponge Daubers, Square punch (to make banner), Burlap String, Button, Washi Tape, Sentiment from Leaping Trout Digital Stamp Set (Power Poppy), Kraft/Orange/Black Cardstock

Hi Esther, I really wanted to snag this image, but I am so behind and don't have a chance to color these days. I'm loving how you printed this on kraft. It's so perfectly fall and utterly gorgeous! Amazing design. Big hugs, Autumn
