Perfect Sentiment Challenge #92 - Find Me Some Fall

Where we live fall is a beautiful time of year, but not nearly as much as areas that have aspens or sugar maples turning bright yellow or red. Here the pumpkins are ready in the area farmer's markets.


Our sponsor is Pattie's Creations who is providing 3 free digis to our lucky winner.

I used her fall image with a pumpkin cut into a watering "can" with two mums, the fall flower I used to line the church railing at my wedding some years ago.
I used this sketch from A Die for a Sketch:

The inside verse is encouragement from a Plain Jane stamp from Verve:
Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24. 
The papers I used were retired Close To My Heart Colonial White cardstock, "Moonlight" and "Flirty." I used two dies from Spellbinders, Scalloped Circle and Foliage 2. The scalloped circle was sponged with CTMH whisper near the edge while it was still in the die. This is the way the dies are used like a stencil so that the edges stay white. The foliage was cut from the same green designer paper on the sides, but colored over with a darker Green G99 Copic marker. Because Copic inks are translucent, you can still slightly see the design of the paper on the leaves.   
Copics used: V04, V09, V15: YG03, G24, G99; Y17, Y32, E13 and W1 for the shadow.  I built up layers of color on the pumpkin trying to get what I wanted: YR02, YR04, YR61, YR68.
