Suprise Suprise, more of those pumpkins

Well you know it! I had to make another card with those pumpkins I love so much.
Here is the outside, the swirls are a rub on and the "hello" is letter stickers. Simple again on the outside.
And here is the inside. I cut and stacked the pumpkins this time. The popped them up and put a border and greeting .
Here is a close up of how I did the pop up.

The pumpkins are colored with prismacolor markers again. In case you wanted to know I used Spanish Orange and Yellowed Orange for the main colors (yellowed orange being the tall one) and shading was with the color Burnt Ochre. Leaves are Apple Green with Light Olive over top for shading, then Grass Green again. "Tounges" are poppy red.

Oh how I color most things that I use two colors on is I color the whole thing with the lighter color, then in sections I do the shading with the darker, just a bit, then while it's still a bit wet I go back over with the lighter. So it's all really at least three layers. I really love that about the prismacolor markers (and copic too, I just happen to have more prismacolor than copic) because you can do many layers without any pilling or tearing of the paper.

I have quite the stack of Halloween Cards already AND I just ordered a bunch of Halloween stamps from Eat Cake last week, they should come this week sometime. I can't wait to show you what I have in mind for those. (I think another spinner is in the works)
