Newton's Nook Ink Paw Challenge #207

Hello and welcome back! This week I made a card to enter into the latest challenge from Newton's Nook! I've always been a huge fan of their stamps and dies and decided to use a couple of my favourites. The theme for this challenge is SKETCH. Sketch challenges always gets my creative juices flowing.

Here's my take on this...

I used one of my all-time favourite fall themed stamp sets:  Pumpkin Latte along with its co-ordinating dies. My colouring medium of choice was watercolour pencils which I've been using A LOT lately!

To create the striped panel, I simply used the same colour of pencils that I used on the images to draw 1/2 inch lines on the paper. Then blended it out with water. These particular pencil are permanent when dry to there was no worry on the colours bleeding.

To add some texture to the striped panel, I used the Falling Leaves Stencil along with some white embossing paste. Subtle yet lovely!

I used a border die to create a panel behind the striped piece to add a bit more interest and used foam tape to adhere it to the card base.

I stamped the sentiment on the oval die cut leaving enough room to foam mount the girl. I tucked that cute, pink pumpkin behind her.

I LOVE how this card turned out! Not your traditional fall colours but I think the season is well represented :)!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day and see you soon!
