This is for Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 350 and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 340 - Peaches, Poppies, Pools. I really struggled over images when I saw the colors for Tuesday and this was the 2nd one I struggled over whether to use or not so I decided to use it today. Still get to use it just a day later. I love this darling fall image of pumpkin, corn stalks and a fox lurking behing. He is sooo cute. This set called "AUTUMN GLORY" was just released from MARKS FINEST PAPERS.
I stamped my image on white using momento tuxedo black then colored with copics. I stamped the sentiment in poppy parade and matted on poppy parade cs. Panel 1 is Basic Gray Eerie dp matted on poppy parade with peach pizzazz as panel 3 embossed with the Cuttlebug using Pumpkin Harvest embossing folder. I LOVE how this turned out and hope you do too.
