Orange Pumpkin

Hi Everybody,

This is another card for Halloween and this just features the pumpkin.

The image is from Just Inklined CD "The Next Big Thing" and I printed it off in draft and allowed the printer ink to dry thoroughly before coloring.

The bats in the picture are simply colored with True Black and then cut out and decoupaged onto the card.

The ribbon is tied around the spine with a knot.

The pumpkin has been colored with Spectrum Noir  Pens and the colors I used are ...

OR1 OR2 OR3 TN4 TN7 GB5 GB6 DG2 DG4

It took me some time to complete as there was  a lot of careful shading to get the shape in the pumpkin

But I was pleased with the effect once it was finished.

I cut it out and added it to my card with deep foam pads to raise it up.

So tomorrow is Friday Freebie Day and I have a lovely card to give away in the morning

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  19. Still can't get my comments through sometimes but trying again. Your work is wonderful and the colouring on this pumpkin is fabulous. Not doing Halloween but like a pumpkin soup when it's getting cold outside.
    Have a good evening, Maria x
