Today, I am entering the MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar in the Coloring Virtuoso category. I used Distress Oxide inks and Copics for the coloring with an added touch of colored cardstock to bring out the color of the pumpkins.
I used three different stamp sets and stamped several images on Neenah 110lb cardstock with Tuxedo black ink. I used images from BB Fall Friends, Dog-gone Awesome, and Pure Innocence Sending Blessings. I cut the images with the coordinating dies.
I used Copics to color the images:
Girl: Skin – E11, E00, E000, RV10, Hair – E55, E57, E59, Dress, Boots & Leaves – V99, V95, V93, V91, Sweater – BG72, BG75, BG78
Squirrels – E00, E11, E15, E17, E19, R20
Pumpkins & Leaves – YR14, YR16, YR18, YG61, YG63, YG67
Dog – E57, E55, E53, E53, E50
Red Leaves – R89, R29, R42, YR15
Next, I used Distress oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade and sponged lightly at the top of a 4.25×5.50 card panel. I used Mowed Lawn Distress oxide ink and the grassy edges stencil along the bottom of the panel. In the middle, I lightly sponged Tumbled Glass Distress oxide ink for the sky.
I used the largest stitched rectangle frame and cut it twice, once on the card panel and the other on fun foam. I glued the fun foam to the rectangle and then added another layer of foam adhesive to make the frame stand out. I used the inside portion of the panel and added my images.
I added foam tape to the girl and the puppy to give them dimension. I place leaves around the puppy to look like he jumped in a pile of leaves. I added a sentiment to the bottom edge of the frame and placed pumpkins and the squirrels in the corners.
I used a black fine tip pen on the eyes of the squirrels and the puppy and added glossy accents to the noses. I mounted the entire piece on MFT Persimmon cardstock.
I really love this card. I am super pleased with the way it turned out. That should do it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
