Hi everyone! The air is nice and cool, and the leaves are turning colors, so it finally feels like fall where I live! Today I am sharing a fall-themed card using a stamp set from Isabel Cristina Stamps October release called Skunkies & Racoons. This stamp set is full of the cutest images of Skunks and Racoons. For this card, I decided to use one of the skunks and surround him with the falling leaves.
I started by sizing the skunk to fit the third largest of the My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Circle STAX die-namics. Next, I added the leaves around him and layered them underneath him. Finally, I sized and arranged the sentiment at the bottom. I loaded Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock into my laser printer and printed out the image. Next, I centered the die around the image and ran everything through my die-cutting machine.
Coloring the Image
I colored the images with the following Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils:
Black/dark grey: Black (199), Payne’s Grey (181), Cool Gray VI (235), Cool Gray V (234), Cool
Gray IV (233), Cool Gray III (232), Cool Gray II (231)
Pink: Coral (131), Beige Red (132)
Green: Permanent Green (266), Leaf Green (112), Grass Green (166), Light Green (171)
Red: Dark Red (225), Middle Cadmium (217), Alizarin Crimson (226), Pink Carmine (127)
Orange: Dark Cadmium Orange (115), Cadmium Orange (111)
Yellow: Dark Cadmium Yellow (108), Cadmium Yellow (107), Light Cadmium Yellow (105)
Once I was done coloring, I cut out a circle that was 4.75″ in diameter from one of the patterns in the ICS Autumn Pattern Paper pack. Next, I glued the stitched panel on top. Then, I finished the card by adding some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels on top.
