Here is the image I was given to work with:
And here is my card:
I started my card with my base, it's an A2 sized card 4.25 x 5.5 inches on Neenah cardstock 80 lb.
Next I made my background using a background stamp from Amuse Studio. I purposely only inked a portion of it with Vera Mark and then heat set it with gold embossing powder. I love embossing! I went ahead and tied my ribbon on the card, it matched the green flourishes I die cut. I printed out my pumpkin a few days before I colored it. My ink in my printer needs to dry a bit before I use markers on it. I used my copics in shades of orange, purples, and greens. The center of the flower is yellow and a reddish brown for the stem and shading. I cut the pumpkin out with my scissors, which i could have used my print and cut feature on my Cricut Explore, but this was simple to fussy cut. My pumpkin is popped up with 3M dimensional tape and my sentiment is doubled to be over the pumpkin, I also used a small piece of gold glitter cardstock behind the sentiment to tie it all in. I just love Fall, and was happy to get this stamp to work with!
That's my card for the hop! I hope you liked it!
