Double D Challenges

Hi there... 

This is another scheduled post, this time for my DT project at


Where team Diane are hosting with 
"Pumpkin Time"


Aren't they gorgeous photos?

Here's my card


Now, I'm not one for praising my own creations but I am particularly pleased with how this one turned out.. Once again I've used a digital image from a colouring page as I don't own any stamps or dies for pumpkins, and I manipulated the image to create this arrangement and then coloured them with Copic Ciaos...


Before I print my finished image, I reduce the opacity right down so there are only the faintest of lines to guide me when colouring and I'm so pleased with my colouring on this... Ok, so it's not perfect and I only have a few Copic Ciaos but it's my best yet...
The leaves and the sentiment were cut on my cameo then I sponged the leaves with distress inks and added Mod Podge dimensional - For the sentiment and the wheat I smooshed Versamark over them and then embossed with copper E/B.

As always both our designers have created some wonderful projects to inspire you this week, go take a peek on the blog and link up your creations.

I hope to be able to catch up with you soon...

Have a great day

I am glad you are pleased with this Ros, because it is stunning. Your coloring is fabulous and the green in the leaves provides a fabulous contrast.

You did an AMAZING job with your manipulation and coloring of those pumpkins! No pumpkins? Someone once told me that you don't celebrate fall over there. I'm not sure about celebrating fall, but I love the colors and the cards! Your leaves and wheat and "Fall" word are as gorgeous as pumpkins. This is so fabulous, Ros!!

Barbara said...
