This week's challenge over at Digital Tuesday Chalenge is "BOO!" Rather than make a card, I chose to make a tag. The background with pumpkin was created digitally, then I added the bear by Dustin Pike and dahlia by Tracey Lynn Miller
Stamp Something Challenge Blog is having a Brown Plus Something Challenge, where the main color must be brown with other colors. Stampin' for the Weekend is also having a color challenge with the colors Orange, Brown and Leafy Green.
Since these two challenges were so awesomely similar, I am submitting one card for both challenges. The Pilgrim girl is by Inger Harding Design and is colored with BIC markers and Prismacolor pencils. The flower and leaves are by Tracey Lynn Miller of Fred,She Said Designs The green paper is a digital scrapbooking paper by Terrell Sanzone. The orange paper and brown cardstock are unknown.
Tracey at Fred, She Said is hosting a card making challenge to celebrate World Card Making Day. All you had to do is make a card using her designs. I started with her dahlia outline set and colored the flower parts and leaves with Inktense water-soluable pencils. I then used a freebie paper piercing pattern on a piece of her new pinstripe paper in peach. The flowers and leaves are folded for a dimensional effect and stacked for a further 3-d result. The brown and gold cardstock came from my stash and I antiqued the finished piece with brown dye ink applied with a stiff bristle brush.
