Pumpkin greetings

Happy Friyay people!

I love autumn! Especially when the sun is shining! And it’s been one of those days today, beautiful autumnal weather. Anyway, I also love that the challenges at this time of year give me a perfect opportunity to dig into my HUGE pile of pumpkin stamps and use them!

Today’s card is for the Color Throwdown challenge where the colour combo is orange, kraft and white! Perfect for autumn cards!

I stamped a Penny Black image lightly on to kraft paper and then coloured it in using Prismacolor pencils. I’m really enjoying these pencils – still lots to learn, but I find myself reaching for them more often. Anyway, I went over the entire image with my white pencil first so that the orange would be a bit more vibrant. I didn’t have too many shades of orange in my set, but I am so happy that I was able to make them work for this card!

Once I’d finished colouring, I stamped over it again so that the black ink would be nice and crisp. Thank goodness for the MISTI!

Finally, I added a greeting from Memory Box and a few Nuvo drops to finish the card!

Thanks for stopping by!
