Thanks a Bushel - Fall Themed Thank You Card

For today's card I made a fall themed thank you card using a couple of older stamp sets.


I started out by stamping some images from the stamp set "Thanks a Bushel" by Lawn Fawn and the "Witch Way is the Candy" stamp set by My Favorite Things. I used the apple images from the Lawn Fawn set and the pumpkins from the My Favorite Things one. I stamped those in Simon Says Stamp intense black ink onto some Bristol Smooth paper. I then colored in the images with my Arteza Real Brush Pens. I also added some PC913 Prismacolor pencil to the apples. Check out the video for details on the coloring and to find out the colors used.


Next I created a background to place my colored images on. I taped a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board. I scribble some of my Arteza markers onto a palette and then picked up the color with a paintbrush to watercolor. I wanted to paint a dirt ground background for my images to sit on to kind of give you the feel that it is a farm scene. I used the colors Ginger and Chocolate to paint my background.


Next I used my ATG gun to glue a piece of red cardstock to a card base. Then I glued my watercolor background to a piece of dark gray cardstock that was just slightly larger so there is a small border around the edge. I then popped that piece up onto the card base with foam tape. I glued down my pumpkins to the background using Tombow glue and popped up the apple images with foam tape. I used a white gel pen to add highlights to all of my colored images. Next I used some Prismacolor pencils to add some shading and texture underneath my scene. I used the colors PC946, PC947, and PC943.


To create my sentiment I used the stamp from the Lawn Fawn set which says "Thanks a Bushel" and I stamped it with Versamark ink onto some dark gray cardstock. I embossed it in a white embossing powder and then cut the sentiment down to a strip and popped it up on the card with foam tape.
