Pretty Pink Posh is having a huge release and I hope that a lot of you have already had their new goodies delivered so you can play along with us! Today we are hopping again and bringing you tons of inspiration. You should have arrived here from Keeway and you’ll find the full hop order and more info on all the prizes at the end of the post.
I’m going to share quite a few pictures with this post as well, because the fun peekaboo window is just so much fun and turns an already great card into such a pleasant and fun surprise I’d love to stand next to the recipient and watch him or her figure out that there’s more than meets the eye!
For my card, I went a bit crazy with the coloring, but I was in the mood and didn’t mind that this took a few hours. I stamped the leaves and pumpkins in matching ink colors so I’d get close to some no-line coloring. The blending was done with Polychromos Pencils on Strathmore Vellum card stock. As with all work with pencils, you need to work in layers and build up pressure and color – with lots of patience.
The shower of leaves would in itself already make for a beautiful card, but I also wanted to use the new Peekabo Window dies that come in many shapes. Die-cutting into my coloring had my heart-rate soar for a minute, but I think it was well worth it.
I had a lot of fun to pick up the purple color from the leaves on the inside when I colored the sky. Since that is a bit of a larger area, I used my blending solution to smooth that out. It was easier on my hands since blending such an area takes quite a bit of strength. I should have laid down a third layer of color, though – next time 🙂
To add to the fall and late-in-the-year feeling I added a few white dots symbolizing stars with my Sharpie marker and then the card was done. Hope you enjoyed it!
Hop and win!
