RCC86 - Fall and Halloween


Hey everyone!  Here to share my Ribbon Carousel card for this month.  Our theme is Fall and Halloween, and I went with the Fall theme, mostly because I really wanted to ink up this adorable new Lawn Fawn set.



I started by stamping all the main images:  tree, fox, and sentiment.  Then I went to work on the leaves using four colors to create a kind of ombre effect.  Since I knew I was going to be stamping another fox to color/fussy cut, I could stamp the leaves right over top of the other image without worrying about it.

The fox was stamped with Chocolate ink (like the rest of the images) and I colored him with a Spectrum Noir marker...just one, but going back and adding layers to get the shading.  I used a darker brown and black pen to accent the eyes/nose when I was done.  I also stamped and fussy cut a few leaves so I could add those to the base of the tree.  The heart for the sentiment was colored using a Faber Castell Big Brush Pen.  I love how rich and deep the colors are and you get a little bit of sheen too.

Some Cranberry grosgrain ribbon was the finishing touch.

Be sure to play along this month, you still have plenty of time, and someone will take home a brand new ribbon carousel!
