Happy Fall Revisited

Hello! Here is the last of tutorials from last week's blog hops. This one uses images from Signs of Autumn.

The pumpkins were colored with Copics, starting with YR07 along the edges and shading lines.

Then I added Y17.

Added YR04.

Filled in with YR02.

Then for a little deeper shading, I added a touch of E39 at the bottom and top around the stem. I colored the remaining pumpkins the same way, then cut out the image.

On the background, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe ink, starting at the top and working my way down.

Sponged Memento New Sprout, starting at the bottom and working up.

Sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves along the bottom.

Sponged Memento Potter's Clay along the top.

Then sponged Memento Rich Cocoa around the edges and a little heavier on the right side.

Stamped the wheat twice.

Colored with E53 and E57. I did a lousy job staying in the lines, so I wound up having to place my pumpkins a bit more centered than I intended.

I adhered the pumpkins with Pop Dots and layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and Fresh Asparagus. The DP is from the Memory Box Twilight collection and the card base is PL Pumpkin Spice.

Thanks for visiting. Hope your day is grand!

LOVE IT! But then I could make fall cards all year long. Perhaps I should send out Fall cards instead of Christmas cards this year? :)
Thanks for the pumpkin tutorial. It will come in handy.
