Best of Autumn, MOJO311 & SCCC444

Greetings, Stampers! Stampin' Up recently released it's September 25 anniversary stamp set, Best of Autumn. It went right onto my 'must have' list and once I got it I couldn't wait to ink it up! I love the classic autumn images in this set. 

Today I'm playing along with the sketch challege from Mojo Monday by Julee Tilman. 

I'm also playing along with a color challenge at Spitcoast Stampers for the first time. The colors are: Very Vanilla, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze, and Chocolate Chip, with a dessert option of fussy cutting or using a die. These colors were perfect!

I am no artist, but I love to watercolor and this image was so much fun to do. I just stamped in Stazon, then colored with ink pads and an Aqua Painter. I shaded a little darker along the lines just like when I was a child coloring with crayons in a coloring book. C'mon, I know you remember doing that!
