Branches and Pumpkins

Hello happy stampers! Here is a card using my new set, Fanciful Fall.

I colored both pumpkins with Copics, starting with YG07.

Added YR04.

Added YR12.

Then filled in with YR000.

Then I added just a bit of W3 around the edges for shading. On the stem, I used E55 & E57 and YG97 on the leaf. After coloring, I cut out the image, trimming away the little vines, since those would be too hard to cut. On the larger pumpkin, I trimmed the stem short.

On the background, I stamped the leafy branch twice, in opposite directions, then used E51 on the leaves.

Added YR04.

Then added E35.

For the acorns, I used E35, coloring heavier on the caps and lighter on the main part, and leaving a small highlight area uncolored.

I used my blender pen to soften those highlights.

Then used E57 on the branch.

After both images were colored, I sponged Memento Cantaloupe around the edges.

Sponged a bit of Memento Rich Cocoa.

Then sponged Memento Potter's Clay.

The sentiment is stamped in Rich Cocoa. I layered with Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown and used a Tan Leather card base.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fun filled day!
