This week we have a theme challenge over at the Paper Players. We are making cards with “Autumn Florals”. I can say I feel ready to decorate my front doorstep but are gourds and pumpkins appropriate when it is 90 degrees out? I am still getting used to Florida.
I think I used four different coloring methods in this card. 1) the background is distressed in Peacock Feathers. 2) the bear is stamped, embossed and copic colored on Kraft. 3) the gourd, pumpkin and oak leaves are stamped and die cut from “sprayed” cardstock. I created two different sprayed sheets using Mister Huey’s and Heidi Swapp sprays, one with yellows, oranges and reds; the other with greens and gold. The sheets are lovely and metallic. Once die cut, some supplemental copic coloring was added for emphasis (e.g., pumpkin, berries). 4) the small leaf and acorns are watercolored.
