Happy Fall Ya' All

I stamped this image eons ago and finally got around to coloring it. As I was spying on other blogs, many of the very creative women out there kept referring to "gamsol and stumps". I investigated what that was all about and found out that there is an easier way to blend then my way. I tried finding the gamsol at Micheal's but they did not have it, the store manager must of thought I was crazy because I couldn't explain what it was other then a blending agent to be used with the Prismacolor pencils and stumps. At least I had the stumps in my hand so he didn't think I was entirely a wanky wench. So I bought my stumps and eraser and had to order the gamsol online and I am still waiting for delivery, so this card was done with just my pencils and the best that I could do to blend with them.

Here are the ingredients (to the best of my ability, see post below).

Paper: SU More Mustard or possibly Pumpkin Pie?
SU Old Olive or possibly Garden Green?
Patterned Paper from a stack bought at either Michael's or JoAnn Fabrics (with a coupon of course)
Stamped Image: SU Give Thanks, colored with Prismacolor pencils
Brad: Target Dollar Spot "fall brads set"

The pictures aren't that great, still trying to get the hang of the whole digital camera and holding myself steady.
