Today’s card was inspired by this week’s MFT Card Sketch Challenge.
Today’s card starts off with Basic Black cardstock with a pattern from the Spooky Nights DSP adhered over the card front. I then took another pattern and matted it on some Basic Black cardstock and adhered it to the card front.
I then took a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock and matted it on Basic Black cardstock. I stamped the pumpkin from the Seasonal Chums stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it in using the brand new Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers. I used the Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive markers to color it in.
What I like about the markers after playing with them for a bit is: 1. They can be used with Whisper White paper – no watercolor paper needed; 2. They don’t leave lines when coloring in; 3. They’re forgiving – I’m by no means an expert in coloring and I found them easy to use; 4. A Color Lifter was offered for any “oops” you may make. As soon as they are available to customers I promise to let you know!
The Stampin’ Blends will be available to all customers to purchase beginning November 1st!!
I fussy cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth of the Jack-o-lantern and cut out a small piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock to adhere to the back of it. I cut out the pumpkin and the leaves (Old Olive cardstock) using the Seasonal Tags framelits. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a strip of Pumpkin Pie and snipped the end in a banner.
