Autumn colors

Good morning!

I hope everyone had a very nice Monday.

Autumn is probably my favorite season, mostly because the fall colors. I have another fall card to share. This one uses the stamp set Autumn Beauty, which I just love. All of the images in the set just scream fall.
The scarecrow and corn stalks were stamped on white pure luxury with tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. Before I started brayering the sky, I re-colored the scarecrow and corn stalks with a versamarker pen and heat embossed with clear embossing powder so the images would resist the ink from the sky. To create the sky, I first brayered barely banana ink, then apricot appeal and a bit of more mustard. The ground was sponged on using first always artichoke then black for shadowing. The pumpkins were stamped on white pure luxury with tuxedo black, colored with copics, cut out then re-colored with the versamarker and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The scene with the scarecrow and cornstalks was matted on always artichoke and more mustard cs.
The sunflower was stamped on white pure luxury with tuxedo black ink , colored with copics, re-colored with the versamarker and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sky and ground around the sunflower were added using the same inks and techniques as the scarecrow scene. The sunflower is cutout using spellbinders labels six diecut and matted on more mustard.
The dp is from the Signs of Autumn Stamp TV kit and the card base is Pumpkin Spice.

I hope your Tuesday is filled with much happiness and you take time to enjoy the fall colors around you!
Hugs,
