Harvest Moon over a Pumpkin Patch

Blending a Spooky Night Sky.

I recently learned about these “Life Changing” Blender Brushes (from Picket Fences) from Chris Dayton (you can see her gorgeous MN Loon at Dusk card – HERE). These brushes are so incredibly soft and make it so easy to blend different ink colors that have an “airbrushed look” when you are finished. The trick when blending is to start off the cardstock and in a circular motion, move the brush onto the cardstock. This helps prevent getting ink splotches where some brush bristles picked up too much ink.

Harvest Moonlit Pumpkin Patch

Stamps to make this card: Owl & Autumn Moon Multi-Step Clear StampsBrush Strokes Multi-Step Clear Stampsand Pumpkins Multi-Step Clear Stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps.

I created this card by first stamping in this order:

  • the ground
  • tree
  • leaves
  • moon

Next came blending the sky. Using the largest brushes in a circular motion, starting around the moon and working out towards the cardstock’s outer edges in “rings” of color. I used the following ink colors (from Catherine Pooler) in this order:

  • Limoncello
  • Tiki Torch
  • Mandarin Spice
  • Sugared Lavender
  • Juniper Mist
  • Royal Treatment
  • Black Jack
  • Midnight

Finishing the card with adding the bats over the moon. Coated the pumpkins with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and add to card with pop dots.

A Truck Load for all Seasons part 2

Fall is in the Air

It will be another month or more before Southern California begins to see leaves changing their colors or pumpkins popping-up, but today’s card (second in the “Truck Load for all Seasons” color series), certainly has a color scheme that creates the feeling of Autumn.

Two more Classic Old Truck seasons to come. Please, stay tuned.
