Fall Pumpkins 07258
For my card, I stamped the pumpkins on one panel with Memento and colored them with Copics using the Pointillism technique…basically, a lot of dots, lol. I also did the shadows under the pumpkins the same way. Since it was still in my Misti, I over stamped with Versafine so the details would really pop. I used a pierced rectangle die but I resized it to make it shorter. The sunflowers were done the same way, except I only used the Pointillism on the centers and they were fussy cut. The pumpkins & sunflowers are from the new Fall Pops set. The new Autumn die was cut out of black & a black Oak Leaf die were added.

On the inside, I used the left overs (the leaf & Autumn are embedded in the textured white layer). Fall Pumpkins inside 07255
And these are the Copics I used.
