I started with colored cardstock for my leaves, pumpkins and wood pieces. Normally I just use white cardstock for Copic coloring but, using colored cardstock with copics goes a little quicker. I used a shade darker than the cardstock and just added some shading with the Copics to all of the images and added wood texture with a flicking motion of the Copic Marker.
I used my tweezers to hold and gently bend the leaves to give them some dimension. I adhered everything with liquid glue or foam tape, letting some of the images go off the edge of the kraft cardstock. I tucked some pumpkins into the basket and added those cute leaves all around to give the look of them falling and landing in and around the pumpkins.
I used white embossing powder for the sentiment on the sign. I finished by adding it to a white A2 size card base and used my white gel pen for highlights.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you feel inspired. The next person on your hop is Jenny Colacicco .
