This is a card I have worked on and off on for a couple of weeks. The main image is the corner pumpkin die from Cheery Lynn. I cut it in a green paper that I made using glossy card stock, greens, gold, and yellow alcohol inks. I then cut it again in more of the paper I made using mainly rusts, oranges and golds and I then inlaid those peices for the pumpkin. (Hint: it is much easier if you put some small strips of scotch tape on the back so the small pieces stay in! If you are popping it up, it doesn't have a back to glue to!) I inset the flower (the same way) with paper that had mainly yellow and gold alcohol inks. I mounted with dimensionals on a golden brown piece of card stock from an unknown paper stack. I next decided to punch a bunch of leaves (Punch Bunch) from all different papers I created and formed some of them with my tweezers and then glued randomly to the flourished part of the die cut, trying to create a swirling effect with the leaves. I matted it with a golden yellow and orange cs and mounted it all to a chocolate card base. I used an unknown clear stamp "Autumn" and embossed the orange/rust color ink with clear embossing powder, continuing with the shine that the alcohol ink paper produces!
Thank you for stopping by for a peek!

You KNOW this is going into my favorites! This is one of the most awesome fall cards I have seen. That die is just gorgeous. What a fun technique and incredible results you achieved with piecing it and your alcohol inks! I never thought to do something like this. The dimension you added is fabulous! Peggy, this is GORGEOUS!

Gasp! What a gorgeous card! This pumpkin so reminds me of the pumpkin in the movie Cinderella right before it becomes the carriage. Something about the long running vines I guess. I love everything you have done with your gorgeous card! TYFS. Karen
