Happy Harvest

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

For this month, the talented Design Team is sharing projects made with Fall/Halloween stamps. So here is my card using some of these super adorable High Hopes images...
This is Harvest Harry (S032), Crow from We're All Ears (K034) and Happy Harvest Sign.  What an adorable scarecrow and crow!
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image and background (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, Glossy Accents were added on the crow's beak.  Once this was all dry, I proceeded to fussy cut out the crow and sign.  The main image was die cut using a MFT - Cross Stitch Rectangle die.  The background clouds were created using a scalloped oval punch template and some Adirondack Aqua ink pad with sponge dauber.  I just moved the punched piece randomly around and sponged the ink in an upward motion.

For the card base and main image layering, I decided on a piece of SU Chocolate Chip cardstock.  The designer paper is from Bo Bunny-Heritage Collection 6x6 Paper Pad.  To create the cornstalks, a MFT die called Cornstalk was used with SU Always Artichoke cardstock.  A Versamagic dewdrop - wheat, was lightly brushed over the tip of the cornstalks to create a more realistic tassle on the corn.  To adhere the crow, sign and cornstalks, foam tape was applied to help make them pop out a bit and add some dimension to my card.
