Kiss for Chloe in fall colors

My sweet friend and fellow dirty girl Jodi (kharmagirl) is hosting today's color challenge on SCS. Yay, Jodi! :) She picked Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, and Baja Breeze. Great fall colors!

I just ordered my first Sarah Kay stamps from Sweet 'N Sassy. I got this one and Margaux is Painting. They kept catching my eye in the gallery...and then I saw Cindy (one happy stamper) work her magic with them....yep, HAD to have 'em! Have you seen what she's done with them? Wowzers! The girl can color!! She's a sweetheart too. :)

Both Really Rust panels are up on separate layers of dimensionals. The grosgrain ribbons and rust brads are from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts. The image was stamped in Versafine Black Onyx onto Fabriano watercolor paper and watercolored with Baja Breeze, Really Rust, Basic Brown, Pacific Point (just on the seams of the boy's overalls), Blush Blossom, and Pink Pirouette (just on their cheeks...gotta make 'em blush, hehe!) reinkers with a wet watercolor brush.
