Pumpkin Patch

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

TGIF!!!  As summer nears the end, the air starts to feel a bit more crisp and harvest season is near.  I am excited to share another fall card with you today.
This is Pumpkin Patch (S152).  I just love the country appeal this stamp has!
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (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 lettering of the sign and on the crow's beak and heart.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Always Artichoke cardstock and the layering piece is SU Kraft cardstock.  The designer paper is from Simple Stories-Take A Hike 6x6 Paper Pad.  A sponge dauber with a SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad was used to sponge ink around the edge of the image and layering piece, to give the card a more country/rustic look.  Foam tape was applied to the main image to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension.  To complete this card, some strips of twine with a bow was added, along with a few sparkling clear sequins. 
Supplies Used:
