SJC52: Pumpkin Thank You’s

Hi everyone! Today we have a new Share Joy Challenge by Taylored Expressions. We have a fun sketch and CaS challenge for you. I have really been wanting to color the new Pumpkin Bouquet from the September release and the sketch this week was perfect with that big open space at the bottom so I knew immediately what I wanted to do.

To get started I stamped the bouquet on Strathmore Bristol paper in the smooth texture using Oreo TE ink. I used my MISTI to make sure all the details stamped cleanly. I’ve been hearing that the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers work great on bristol board and I’ve been wanting to give it a try so this was the perfect opportunity! I am SO happy with how the colors blend on this paper. I did not use a water brush when coloring this. The colors are SO VIBRANT, almost so much so that my camera couldn’t handle the color. 🙂 Now I’m going to need to get more of these markers because I only have the 36 pack and with this new paper I’m going to need them all!!

To create the banners at the top I die cut all of the new Bitty Banners (I LOVE THESE!!!) and stamped a sentiment from Pumpkin Bouquet on the center one. I used a bit of Ivory Burlap Twine to string them together and popped them up on foam tape. In the background sponged a little Salt Water Taffy ink for depth and covered the card base in orange dot paper from Rainbow Brights 6×6 Paper Pack!
