I Love Fall

I could stand in the pumpkin patch and look around all day. Some of what I saw is replicated in this card. These images were a PIF from SBS81 (Thanks Stephanie!)

I colored the images my usual way with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.

I did my usual Cut then Ink Technique to get my layers to line up. I brayered the sky. I sponged the entire ground area with Creamy Caramel ink. I used a torn piece of paper as a mask and sponged Close to Cocoa to create the little mounds of earth in the field.

Another little cloud experiment here….I drew the shape of a cloud, cut it out and used it as a mask. I sponged Whisper White ink very close to the mask (even used a trimmed makeup sponge to get a finer line of white ink) and then used the sponge to “smear” it down and to the right so that the cloud just faded off into the sky. (You can click on the picture to enlarge)

I cut the lower layers of corn stalks in half so I could angle them more and to get a thinner middle to “wrap” the twine around.

I love how you did the sky. I attempted this once but it didn't quite work out for me. I think i was just dabbing and not sponging away from the top of the cloud like you showed... thanks for the tip!
