Fall Easel Card

Easel card  stamped autumn front front of easel card

I use to rubber stamp and make all of my greeting cards at one time. Then, I didn't rubber stamp for several years.  I found this unmounted image  at a rubber stamp convention many years ago, but I had never inked it up. The  image is from Impression Obsession (K1013).
This afternoon I decided to try and make an easel card, a first for me. I didn't have a pattern, and kind of figured it out for myself  by trial and error. The next easel card will take less time to create. I used colored pencils to color the image.

This was another rubber stamp that I had never inked up.  Sad to say, I have many stamps that have never seen a ink pad.  
Yesterday and today have really felt like fall with the blustery winds and leaves drifting silently to the ground. We don't don't have much color yet.
I hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon and found time to get some crafting in this weekend. If you did, what did you make?

I like your easel card (have not yet made one myself). It's definitely fall here in Michigan - color, cold and falling leaves. I spent much of my week-end working on Halloween cards and ATCs.
