Passion For Promarkers Challenge #559 - Autumn/Fall

 Hi Crafters,

How the weather has changed of late, cloudy mornings, cooler days and darker evenings!

I'm not ready to shut the curtains and put the light on at 7.30 pm but that's the way it is and so I must settle myself to the fact that Autumn has arrived.

Aptly our theme this week at Passion For Promarkers is


This week, just for a change, I thought I'd make a tag instead of a card. Our challenges are open to all kinds of projects as long as you follow the theme and use your Winsor Newton Pro, Flex, Brush, Tria, Aqua and Metallic markers.


Image - 'Just a Pumpkin' by Mo's Digital Pencil

Heartfelt Creations Vine Stamp and Die set

Both coloured with Promarkers

Crealies Fancy Tag Dies

Sheena Douglas Leaf Embossing Folder

Distress Inks

Inkylicious Sentiment Stamp

Ribbons from stash

The pumpkin digital image was a single image and so I duplicated and re-sized it to create a group of pumpkins. It also didn't have any foliage with it and I thought that the Heartfelt Creations vine stamps looked similar to pumpkin leaves so I combined the two - I think it works quite well. I added some zig-zag stitching around the background for a little more detail.

Such a clever idea to triplicate the pumpkin to make a patch and they work so well with your pretty die cut vine. Love the tag shape, the ribbons and the stitched border round your sentiment and your colour work, well, WOW! Thank you for joining in the fun at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge this month. Hugs, Lesley
