One More Fall

I wanted to use some digital stamps from my friend, Bonnie at Pretties by Bonnie.  She has some great Fall ones so, of course, I decided to stay with my current theme.  I promise I will move on to something else soon.

I printed the digital pumpkin on cream cardstock and colored with Tombow markers.  I tore out the image and inked the edges with Distress Ink.  I layered this on some green decorative paper that I embossed with a leaf background and used the direct to paper technique using a green Adirondack ink pad.  Then I scrunched up the paper, spread it out, and rubbed on some dark brown Adirondack ink. 

This was layered onto a brown cardstock that was embossed with a Fall Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sanded to bring out the yellow core color.  This was layered on green cardstock, then layered onto a rust base.

I added two bling Fall leaves that I picked up on clearance at Michael's, along with a few jewels on the pumpkin's vine. I finished this off with a homemade "prima" rose that I inked up with various distress inks in Fall colors.

Thank you, Bonnie, for the great digital image that inspired this card.
