I decided to focus on that super cute scarecrow, and I had great fun coloring him. (I used my Copic markers on this one, but I can't wait until ALL of our new CTMH alcohol markers are available, so I know my colors are going to coordinate perfectly!) Here's the fun card I made using that scarecrow:
I started with a 5" x 7" card base from Indian Corn Blue CS, and sponged all of the edges with Indian Corn Blue ink. The pumpkin image is also stamped in Indian Corn Blue. I stamped the scarecrow image once on a 3" x 4" panel, and matted it with Sunset CS cut to 3.25" x 4.25", also with its edges sponged in Sunset ink.
You can see here, I stamped my image a second time on a scrap. I colored in only the scarecrow and crow on that image and cut them out. For the image stamped on the panel, I colored in everything except those items, then colored them in with just a gray marker so it wouldn't be stark white. I added snips of embroidery floss for the scarecrow's "straw", which I adhered on his back using Liquid Glass. After that dried, I adhered the scarecrow and crow to the main image using 3-D Foam Tape.
I also sponged Sunset ink on my Color Ready Seam Binding (AFTER I tied the bow) to give it a more uneven and rustic look than if I had colored it with a marker beforehand. Adding to the Fall in the country feel are that fabulous Burlap Ribbon and a ribbon slide from the Mini-Medley Accent Pewter Collection.
