I love autumn, I love the beautiful colours and I was, therefore, very excited to see that the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge is an autumn-themed challenge. I played around with some Distress Inks in autumn colours and decided to enter the challenge with this card:
For this card, I started with the background: I took a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolour Paper and covered it with clear water. I, then, took Distress Inks in the colours Stormy Sky, Spiced Marmelade, and Squeezed Lemonade.
While the background panel was drying, I prepared the images for my card. I picked the pumpkins from Lawn Fawn’s stamp sets Happy Harvest and Pick Of The Patch. I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, a Copic-friendly ink, and coloured them with my Copic markers:
- cart: BG13, BG49, C6, N4
- orange-ish pumpkins: YR15, YR18, B24
- yellowish pumpkins: Y15, Y35, BV04
- both orange and yellowish pumpkins: Y35, YR18, B24
- stem: G17
I die-cut all the images using their coordinating dies and my Cuttlebug, a die-cutting machine.
After the background panel had dried, I stamped the sentiment from the Pick Of The Patch stamp set in Walnut ink by Lawn Fawn. From teal-coloured cardstock (it looks more blueish on the pictures), I die-cut the word “hello” from Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Hello.
In order for the pumpinks to have a ground to stand on, I trimmed a piece of the brown paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid Fall 6×6 patterned paper pack. Everything is adhered together with glue – except the pumpkin with the carved face. This one was mounted on foam tape to make it stand out.
I hope you enjoy this card!
Thank you for stopping by! See you again soon!
