Pumpkin Patch Tilda

I've been longing for the cooler days and nights of autumn... my favorite time of the year can't come soon enough!

"Patch Tilda" is now "Pumpkin Patch Tilda"! I drew the six pumpkins, coloured them with Copics and popped them up on foam dimensionals, adding Tilda with ScorTape so she is safely resting on one of the large gourds.

I used Bazzil cardstock for the base and on top of that layered some Fancy Pants "My Family - Aunt" paper, inked with Stampin' Up's Mellow Moss and distressed with my Making Memories distress tool.

Before I distressed the patterned paper, I ran it through my printer to add the sentiment. A simple addition of green wired sheer ribbon, with a double bow to finish it off.

The inside of the card was the same patterned paper, just the second side... the sentiment was cut with my Martha Stewart lace border punch and edged with the same Mellow Moss ink.

If you'd like a pumpkin patch of your very own, check out my DigiDrawn site for the stamp! Or, if six pumpkins are too much for your needs, choose from two other versions: I've also drawn a set of three pumpkins, and an image of a single pumpkin with leaf!

Copics used:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00
Hair: E30, E33, E35, E37
Overalls: B91, B93, B95, B97, RV32, RV000, BV01, RV91, RV93, C0, C1, C2, C3
Shirt and Socks: Y11, Y15, Y17


Y000, Y32, Y35, Y38, YR21, YR23, YR24, G20, G21, G24, G29, W3, W5

Lovely cards, and thanks so much for adding the Copics you used! I only own ONE at the moment, so seeing what colours to use, will help me with deciding which to buy next out of that huge range. Bit daunting to make a decision when I can only buy a few a month!
