Harvest card

Family was visiting over the weekend so I'm finally getting around to posting my card. It is a harvest card for the Mod Squad Challenge Blog - A Fruitful Harvest.  I am also entering it in Hiding in my Craft Room - Freestyle and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

I decided to use pumpkins on my card which I coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and cut out. For the background I stamped the image several times with Versamark ink and used clear embossing powder to give a bit of a shine. I die cut a scalloped oval, and dry embossed it to bring out the middle. I used a Versamarker pen to colour the outside border and used clear embossing powder to match the background.

I used brown cardstock to create a small border around the background and wrapped some ribbon around the layers before they were attached to the card base. I popped up the oval with foam dots and used tape for the back pumpkins and more foam dots for the front two to give some dimension.

I used the following products:

Paper - White - Bazzill Basics Simply Smooth; Brown, Tan and card base from my stash
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa, Versamark watermark ink and marker
Stamps - Inkadinkado Autumn Greetings set
Embossing powder - Recollections clear detail
Die cut, Ribbon - unknown
Spectrum Noir markers - CR10, OR1, GB5, GB3, DG3
