I chose this pumpkin image from our sponsor, Oak Pond Creations. For me, Pumpkins have always meant Fall is here! I love the vibrant Fall colors! I colored this one with Prismacolor Pencils! I added a Distress Ink background that I learned at Marie Gamber's Background Class at CMC! This is an awesome class, and I guarantee that you will never look at an image in the same way again! Check it out!
I added some Stickles to the leaves of the pumpkin to add some sparkle and then layered the image on a piece of embossed foil! I added a strip of ribbon to the bottom, because my embossing folder was not quite big enough and left a plain area at the bottom. I added a piece of plain green background paper and adhered it to my card base. I then stamped (or tried to) my sentiment at the bottom. I learned that stamping on top of water resistant pencils is a challenge! Because of the waxy coating that makes them water resistant, the ink doesn't stamp well at all. So, after it was all done I just traced over the stamped sentiment with a fine tipped Sharpie. That worked!
Inside, I added some punched out pumpkins and vines, added some Wink of Stella, some Dazzle leaves, and a white cut out on which to write, with some orange background paper.
That's it for this week...be sure to visit Oak Pond Creations for some great designs!
