Card #1: Stacked Pumpkins Slimline Card

This stack of pumpkins was so much fun to create on a slimline card–I wouldn’t have been able to do this tall of a stack on a regual A2 cards. I love all the images from this Happy Fall set! I stamped out my crow first and then stamped down from there, masking as I went along. I stamped on a piece of speckled off-white cardstock from MFT called Primitive Cream Heavyweight Cardstock. I love using colored cardstock for my colored pencil work. It gives you a nice base color to start with.

I then colored in my images with colored pencils. I colored the pumpkins different colors to add variation to my scene. I then masked my images and colored in the background behind them with Distress Oxide Inks. This is a really fast way to add color to your work.

Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils:

Dark Cadmium Yellow 108, Cadmium Orange 111, Dark Cadmium Orange 115, Light Cadmium Red 117, Deep Red 223, Light Red-Violet 135, Purple Violet 136, Delft Blue 141, Warm Grey VI 275, Black 199, Pink Madder Lake 129, Raw Umber 180, Terracotta 186, Burnt Umber 280, Permanent Green 266, Hooker’s Green 159

Distress Oxide Inks: Black Soot, Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Shabby Shutters.

Card #2: Autumn Scenes Slimline Card

I used the largest wonky stitch slimline die this time and cut out a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. This is the paper to use if you are using your Arteza or Zig Real Brush Pens. It allows the pens to blend beautifully. I stamped and masked my scenes using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and poured clear embossing powder over them. Once I melted the embossing powder, the lines were shiny and smooth. The embossed lines contain the watercolors, so you can paint and don’t have to worry about your images bleeding into each other.

I cut out another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using the smallest wonky stitch die and used that for my sentiment strip and to separate my two scenes. I stamped two more sentiments–one above each scene. The sentiments fit perfectly in the top corners of these scenes.

Arteza Real Brush Pens:

Pumpkin – Sunset Yellow, Orange, Autumn Red; Stem – Pale Green, Basil Green; Backbird – Wisteria Purple, Amethyst Purple, Eggplant Purple, Noir; Beak – Lemon Yellow, Peach; Leaf – Basil Green, Pale Green. Lemon Yellow, Orange, Cadmium Orange. Cheeks – Rouge Pink; Scarecrow – Face & Hands – Cantaloupe; Hat – Green Tea; Patches, Lemon Yellow, Orange; Straw Hair – Lemon Yellow, Orange; Jeans – Night Sky Blue
