Well, I finally got some time to play with Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I know it is a bit early for Halloween cards but I couldn't help myself, I just recently got this DS paper and had to use it! I love Halloween so I am sure you will be seeing alot more in the next few months!
This card turned out to be fairly big, it is 4 inches wide by 8 inches long. I had to make it that size to accommodate the sketch and the stamps I wanted to use.
I started out with a base of basic black and followed that with some pumpkin pie cardstock and then some of the new Cast-A Spell Ds paper.
I was very much inspired by this card by Nancy Riley. Isn't is just adorable!!!
I used the same cardstock colors and DS paper she used. I just changed it up to fit the sketch and the stamps I used.
I stamped the pumpkins from Autumn Harvest on watercolor paper. I stamped the small pumpkin first and then made a mask for it with some sticky note paper and then stamped the large pumpkin. I colored them with my aqua painter and used the following inks, more mustard, pumpkin pie and really rust. I also used some chocolate chip ink for the stem and ground.
The sentiment comes from the retired SU set Autumn Apparitions, which I love and wish it had never retired! I also used some pumpkin pie corduroy brads and button. I used my Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch and the SU scallop edge punch.
I don't know what you would mail this in, I don't have any envies this size. Since it is very large, It could be just added to a gift or tray of treats or used for decoration, I guess!
Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
