This week's Stampin for the Weekend Challenge (#3) is based on the titles of a couple of my favorite songs. We were to find inspiration in "Time of the Season" or "Whiter Shade of Pale" (or "Please Mr. Postman," a fun song but not on my personal top 20.) While pondering that, I realized I'd missed a VSN mini at SCS. One of the VSN challenges was to create a card in brown, yellow, white, red and green. Sounds like fall to me. So, I took my inspiration from VSN to create my SFTW card, Time of the Season, for my favorite season, fall.
The main stamped image is from Chapel Road Art Stamps, featuring a Walt Whitman quote about leaves. There's a little glitter on the leaves that you can't see in the photo. I also used a stamped strip I had made earlier (and came across while cleaning up my stamping area.) To make that leafy strip, I colored a maple leaf stamp (All Night Media) with markers, spritzed with water and stamped for a watercolor effect.
To finish it off, I added a maple leaf brad and some piercing.
