Hello everyone! Marie here and I want to share a card I created for you today. I know it is still summer, but I like to get a jump-start on Fall. I love that time of year. The smells of cinnamon, hot spiced cider and freshly baked pumpkin pie make me a happy woman!
I used the adorable stamp by La La Land Crafts Rubber Stamp called Luka with Pumpkin. This stamp is a breeze to use. It is a deep etched rubber stamp with a cushion back and it stamps with a beautiful, clean image. It comes ready to use! It measures approximately 4 in x 3 in. It is a perfect size for card making, scrapbook pages and other crafts.
I used the following Copic alcohol ink markers on my image:
Skin Tone: E000, E11
Pumpkin: YR18, YR16, YR15, YR12, YR00, R59
Pumpkin Stem: W4, W1, W00
Pants and Shoes: E40, E42, E44
Jacket, Hat and Socks: BG70, BG72, BG75
Hair: YR23, YR23, E35, Y23
Grass: G24, G29
You will notice I used a very dark R59 very sparingly at the bottom of the pumpkin for my darkest shadow.
This is not the natural family group for YR but it works well if used in a small amount to add high contrast.
If you would prefer a moderate contrast, E35 could be used as a substitute.
I personally like high contrast and find that the eye is often drawn to such images.
You will also notice I created grass around Luka. I always like to ground my images,
and creating grass is a fun way to accomplish that.
I created a little quilled pumpkin to coordinate with the theme of the image.
A frame was created my using a large oval die.
Framing the images is a fun twist!
I hope you enjoyed my Fall card with Luka holding a pumping that is MUCH too big for him. Remember to stop by and join in our MarkerPop Challenge this week.
