Pumpkins and Mums

I tried something new with this card, sometime ago I saw a tutorial on using copics and coloring in a grid on the Classroom. After you color the grid you use blending solution to create splotches and interest in the background. The stamped image is from Northwood, and I love all the beautifully detailed images.While playing around I decided to try the background using YR12, 15, 16, 18. After the background was done I overstamped the image. Then I decided it needed a bit more so I  went back and colored in some of the objects with copics. The background paper is from Memory Box.

It was a great weekend here, went by way to fast though. The boys spend Saturday night at the beach with a friend surf fishing and having an all around awesome time. Pixie and I had a quiet night with just the two of us, it was nice. Then on Sunday, Pixie and I went to visit our friend Debbie, for the afternoon. We had a great time with good food, and lots to catch up on. The pumpkin pie she made was so good, I have to pace myself because I would eat the entire thing!  We both even got to stamp a little, Lainey discovered Debbie's craft room and had fun getting into stuff. One day she will hopefully be my sidekick and enjoy crafting as much as I do. Hope everyone has a beautiful week.
