Hello pumpkin!

It's the first Friday of the month so of course that means an "elemental" challenge over at Daring Cardmakers. Dawn has chosen the lovely inspiration picture this month, you'll find it at the end of this post if you didn't arrive here from DCM. Just choose at least three elements from the picture to kick-start your project.

I chose the colours, pumpkin, woodgrain and script style hello sentiment.

The pumpkin and splattery colour was done before I decided I wanted some woodgrain texture on there. Because the pumpkin is quite detailed, I didn't want to emboss the texture over it and risk obscuring the detail. I tore up some cereal packet and glued together a couple of layers to make a sort of "diffuser" for the embossing folder so I could get the impression on just part of the square.

Stamps:
Vintage Seed Packet (Waltzingmouse Stamps, no longer with us)

Paper:
Bristol board

Ink:
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Pearlescent Chocolate)
Adirondack dye ink by Ranger (Pool and Stream)

Other:
Copic markers
White paint pen by Posca
Pine Planks embossing folder (Stampin' Up!)
Hello die (Waltzingmouse Stamps, no longer with us)
Tracing wheel
Corner Chomper

Here's the lovely autumnal inspiration Dawn has for us this week:


Are you inspired? We'd love to see you over at DCM if so!

Fabulous. I love this embossing folder and the technique to mask off the corner is just a brilliant idea. x
