Your Next Stamp Challenge #75

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am sharing my card for Your Next Stamp's Challenge #75. This is a biweekly sketch and/or color challenge. I have used the color combination for my project today. It's a very nice fall-inspired photo with wonderful autumn colors. I've used all of the colors on my card. Here is a look at this week's sketch and color combo. To play along,  for more information,or to see the rest of the design team's inspiring projects (CLICK HERE!) to go to the Your Next Stamp Blog.

As for my card, I used the Your Next Stamp Halloween Pumpkins stamp set as well as a sentiment from Fangtastic Halloween. I started with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock. I cut it down with the second-to-largest Stitched Rectangle dies. I then measured 1/2 inch from each edge to mask off a rectangle. You can look below for a link to the YouTube video I created while making this card. It might be better at explaining things. I ink blended a gray sky and green grass background using Distress inks in Hickory Smoke, Twisted Citron, and Mowed Lawn. The Hickory Smoke Distress Ink  gives a good variation of color on it's own. The Twisted Citron is a great color, but when blended, can sometimes look a little flat on it's own. So, to fix that, I added the Mowed Lawn to give a little more depth.

I stamped the images using Your Next Stamp Black Olive Ink, which is Copic friendly. I masked them and arranged them in a cluster. I colored them with my Copic markers and used my Scan N Cut to cut out my masked and stamped cluster of images. I popped them up onto my background with 3M foam tape.

I stamped my sentiment from Fangtastic Halloween with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Papertrey Ink's Orange Zest cardstock. I used an MFT stitched sentiment die to cut it out. I then popped it up with 3M foam tape onto my background.
