FTHS – The Great Pumpkin

From the Heart Stamps (FTHS) is holding a Design Team call through August 31, 2015.  I look forward to submitting my card for consideration as they rarely open up for design team calls.

I chose a pumpkin Birdbrain image called, “Great Pumpkin Birdbrain” because Fall is my favorite time of the year. I colored my card with Copics and kept it clean and simple allowing the coloring to shine.  The background is BV23, BV25, B41, B91 and a touch of B39 which I texturized with burlap and alcohol.  For the pumpkins I used YR04, YR07, YR09, and R08.  For the birds I used V01, V05, V06 and V09.  Grass is YG03, YG17 and YG67. Ground E40, E41 and E42. The sentiment is from “Bewitchin’ Birdbrains” and cut out with Simon Says Stamp curved die and distressed with Scattered Straw and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink.
