I like to make a different type of card for each holiday rather than making the same old ones for everyone. I like to add a little character. The first thing I did, was I took my Bliss Blue ink and sponged the white card lightly to make it look like a sky. Then I stamped my scarecrow onto water color paper with Black Stazon. I colored him using various inks with my blender pen. I cut him out. I took some raffia, trimmed to fit the sizes for his hands and feet. I added a piece of then paper for the pole to make it feel like he was in the ground around the pumpkins. I took my Sizzix mini tag and hand wrote the words Happy Fall and strung it thru with jute onto his arm. I also stamped some leaves using markers so I would get a different color for each leaf. I also stamped the sun, made it a 3D effect but stamping another image, cut it out, and added a pop dot. Then stamped 2 small pumpkins for the scarecrow. I added some grass from the Because of You set. I thought this was a cute card. TFL!
