Autumn Pumpkin

JustRite Friday Challenge #032 is a color challenge using olive, chocolate and pumpkin colors.  I began by using Graphic 45 "Birds in Paradise" paper for my print and Bazzill solids for the brown and orange.  I colored my ribbon making it a stripe using Copic Markers E25  Caribe Cocoa, YG95 Pale Olive and YR16 Sanguine.  I stamped the pumpkin image  from the JustRite set "Autumn Blessing" using Memento Rich Cocoa on the striped paper.  I had stamped it on solar white before and colored using my Copic Markers YR18,  YR16, YR14 and YR04.  The stems and leaves were colored using the Copic Markers that were used on the ribbon.   I added some distress ink to get rid of any white left after cutting.  The leaves were made a multi-color for fall.  After cutting it out I  used foam mount to pop the image.  The verse is from the JustRite set "Natures Nested Sentiments".  This was stamped on Kraft paper and  mounted on brown and orange using the foam mounts.  This was all cut using Spellbinder dies.  The Graphic 45 paper was mounted on brown which was mounted on the orange.  Hope you enjoy


  1. Very pretty! I love the stripes with the pumpkins!

Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
