Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Awesome Autumn challenge! Autumn is my favorite time of year and it’s just not the season without my annual viewing of It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown so I used that as inspiration for my card today!
To start I blended Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot distress oxide ink onto a panel of white cardstock to create a night sky. Then I die-cut the Stitched Hillside Backdrop: Landscape from Black Licorice Cardstock and layered it over the blended background. I die-cut a large circle from the Circle Stackables and blended a little Scattered Straw and Mustard Seed distress oxide ink to create a glowing moon. Next I die-cut the Bayou Backdrop twice and the leaves from Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait from Noble Fir cardstock and blended a little Black Soot distress oxide ink onto some of the greenery. I set those aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.
Next I stamped my Pick of the Patch pumpkins three times with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with Copic markers, die-cut them with the coordinating dies, and then went over the edges of the die-cut images with a black Copic marker so they would blend better with the background. I also stamped my sentiment with Milo’s ABCs onto white cardstock, trimmed it down to create a sign and added a little Copic shading.
Then I tucked my moon behind the Stitched Hillside, and added my pumpkins and “vines.” I added a few accents with a white gel pen and stars in the sky with a white paint pen. I tucked in my sign and then finished the card with a few blasts of silver glitter dust for even more sparkle!!
And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see your Awesome Autumn creations! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend!
