Punchkins

Afternoon. Just a quick post to share a card I made for a couple of challenges out there.


I was mainly influenced by the photos at The Card Concept (Clean and Layered?) and Fusion and as it is pretty CAS it also fits with the challenge over at AAA.
I used the technique I found on you tube for making the pumpkins (see technique page) last year so thought I would give it a go. I kept the colours neutral as befits the CC photo by using a textured white card and three different dies, a bit of foliage left from another project and a scrap of ribbon for the stalks.The edges of the die cut shapes were inked with Di weathered wood then assembled into the pumpkins. The background of the wood was made using a Crafters Companion EF and the Thanks is a couple of Spellbinders Sentiments Thank You and Congratulations, as I wanted to have the phrase thanks.
