Fall Feeling

OK, so this IS Florida and we most likely won't start feeling fall til mid November sometime. But I got some new t!m stamps yesterday that I had pre-ordered and since it was Friday, that means it's time for Compendium of Curiosities II challenge 20 at Linda's. And as always, we're based on the book by Tim.

This week's challenge is Enameled Stamping and is found on page 44. I inked up the new Autumn Blueprint stamps using the acorn in Gathered Twigs and the oak leaf in Ripe Persimmon and then continued on with the rest of the technique. I added some flowers, leaves and a  beetle bug from my stash and painted them with Paint Dabbers then used embossing powder to make them shine.
