From the Pumpkin Patch

As soon I saw the Autumn Blessings set from JustRite, I decided that would be my one new set for fall this year. I love all of the harvest images and borders. Today's card is my take on Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #84. It was a fun, easy sketch. For my pumpkin image, I colored the pumpkins with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and the stems and leaves with markers. Then, I used a blending pen and Twilight ink to go around the entire image to give it a bit more depth.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Autumn Terracotta cardstock; Retired CTMH Nature's Treasures paper packet; Black, Chocolate, and Twilight ink pads; Brown Bag and Garden Green markers; JustRite Autumn Blessings Borders & Centers and Impression Obsession Sentiments II stamp sets; Gold mini brads; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; Dove blending pen; Stampin' Up Word Window punch; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilties Classic Circles set.

Wow! It's the last week of September already. I hope yours is a good one! Thanks for stopping by... Oh, and if you're interested in what I do besides stamp, stop by "This is the Day..."

Fantastic fall card, Kathi! Love those pumpkins. I can see why it so appealed to you.

(I was having some issues with Google Reader yesterday and didn't get to comment like I wanted, sorry. At least the issue appears to be fixed now.)
