Autumn Colors!

This is for a few challenges! Just Magnolia (star), Deep Ocean (goodbye summer),
 7 Kids Collage Fund challenge (1 stamp-2 papers-3 embellies), Tilda's Town (autumn colors),
The Sketchy Challenge (sketch). I used the wonderful sketch, layered and distressed all the papers, added some gauze, flowers, pearls, ribbon, a button, a star, and when I colored Tilda with my distress inks, I did a little something different for the shading! If you look real close (clicking on pics they will enlarge), you will see I used my "nimb" pen to add hundreds of tiny dots for the shading! Years ago I used to do some watercolr painting, and this was part of the technique was to shade using thousands of "dots" to shade! I really liked the effect, and decided to try it on some of my stams! I really like the look! Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin' a peek! Teresa*
