The Pumpkin Patch

Today I made a double challenge card. This is for the Mojo56 sketch challenge (love these!) and HHC3 challenge to use stitching. We went to the pumpkin patch this weekend and I just had to make something from all the beauty I saw there.

This cute main image was received from LMcAree (Thanks Lori!) over at the PIF images thread.

(I thought about calling this the Stinky Stiches card. Clearly this isn’t my best skill! Ha!)

I did my usual Cut then Ink Technique to get my layers to line up. For the “dirt” I first sponged the area with Creamy Caramel. I then used a couple of torn pieces of paper as masks and sponged along the edges with Close to Cocoa. To make the pumpkins appear to be tucked in the dirt, I just roughly cut the bottoms off and placed the bottoms up against a dark part of the dirt. The clouds are just a tiny piece of sponge dipped in Whisper White ink. First I dab the top edge of the cloud shape. Then I use the sponge to pull the color down and to the right on the bottoms (smeared).
