Pretty Pheasants All in a Row

This Autumn Days stamp set has proved itself much more versatile than I anticipated. The leaves, the grasses, and especially the pheasants have surprised me in the best possible way.

We do have pheasants on Maui…not down here at sea level where I live, but on Haleakala, in the area of the island we call “Upcountry”.  Maui has so many micro climates – wet side, dry side, sand at sea level, red dirt at upper elevations, lava flows and forest – if you don’t like what you see, keep going because in a few miles it will change.  I always like what I see.

I colored these fellows with markers and then masked them so they could step through the weeds together.


  • Autumn Days and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets
  • Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango and Very Vanilla cardstock
  • Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun Stampin’ Write Markers
  • Chocolate Chip and More Mustard Class ink pads; Basic Black Stampin’ Write Journaler
  • Chocolate Chip narrow grosgrain ribbon; mini glue dots; Stampin’ Sponges; Scotch Post-it notes (for mask)

They’re all relaxed-like, cruising through the weeds, because they know they’re safe for now – it’s Big Cousin Tom Turkey who needs to be lookin’ out in November.
