Trick or Treat Pumpkin Card

Posted by on October 11, 2014

Is everybody’s October crazy busy, or is it just me? I feel like I’ve been playing catch up for the last two weeks. I did manage to squeeze in a little time for a quick card this afternoon. It uses the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the colors from Pals Paper Arts.

FMS Final 157-001   PPA223

I wanted to use the Basic Black patterned paper that comes in the Neutrals stack, but the patterns are in Whisper White, not Very Vanilla. So I pulled a trick out of my hat that I haven’t used in a while. I brayered over the paper with Tangelo Twist ink. And it came out amazing, if I do say so myself! You can’t see it on the black parts, but everything that was once white is now Tangelo Twist!

    Well, that’s clever to change the color of the DSP. I’ll have to remember that trick! Great Halloween card! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

    Your card is sooo cute but you totally sucked me in re: your dsp colors! I loved reading about how you managed to colorize it yourself and it Does look awesome! Great card; thank you for sharing with us! Warmly, Donna (SC)
