Kre8tors Blog October 2018 - Theme: Autumn Color Challenge...

Good afternoon, thank you for joining me today.  My name is Jo and I am from Norfolk in the UK.
I am taking part in the Kre8tors Blog Hop for October together with many other demonstrators from around the World.
This month we were tasked with a colour challenge.  The colours were inspired by the picture below and we had to choose a minimum of three colours from Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Gray Granite.
I love the autumnal colours and never miss up on an opportunity to create with them.

For my card today, I used the Pinewood Planks embossing folder on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I inked some Soft Suede ink directly on to the embossing folder before running it through the machine.

I then punched five circles using the 1 3/4" circle and sponged the edges of the circles, first in Pumpkin Pie and then some Soft Suede.  I shaped the circles slightly before arranging to make my pumpkin.  I then cut a 'stalk' for the pumpkin and coloured in several layers of Soft Suede.  I tied some linen thread around the stalk.
For the leaves (taken from Colorful Seasons) I used the Baby Wipe Technique where you drop re=inker, in your chosen colours, on to a baby wipe and use this as your ink pad.  I used Real Red, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede.  The greeting was stamped using Soft Suede and Pumpkin Pie and is from the Country Home stamp set.
I hope you like my project today.  If you do, please leave me a comment.
  I am now going to pass you on to Sue who I am sure has a lovely project for you today.
 Happy Stampin'
