Clear Dollar Stamps Havest Bounty

I've been keeping something from you...  I'm on the Clear Dollar Stamps design team again playing with their digital images!    It's been a couple of years and I received an e mail from Laurie asking me if I'd like to join their digital team!  Why yes I would!!

My card today is for the Clearly Inspired Challenge that Laurie has at her Clearly iStamp blog the first Friday of every month.  All the details are on Laurie's blog so you can play along too, I put a link in her blog name to take you there.

For my card I used the digital set Harvest Bounty from Clear Dollar Stamps.  It's colored with Copic markers and cut out with a Spellbinder's rectangle and matted with a scalloped rectangle.  I wanted to crop my image closely to fit on my card so I chose a Spellbinders die that was a little small and used the "out of the box" technique.  I was a little nervous about the technique after I spent all the time coloring the image, I've trimmed off parts I needed when I've used this technique in the past!  The ric rac is a die from Papertrey Ink.  My layout is sketch #40 from Operation Write Home a few weeks ago.

Hi Jan, what a stunning card!!! Your coloring is gorgeous!! I haven't tried that nestie technique yet, fearful like you of cutting off what I don't want cut off!! Gorgeous fall colors too.
