Autumn Greetings Card with Copic coloring on Kraft paper

Hi, everyone!
I have a new autumn greetings card featuring some of the new release products from Pretty Pink Posh. This card was shared on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog a week ago as Day 2 of New Release Blog Hop.

 I started by stamping Bear Friends and Fall Signs on 80lb Neenah White paper using Memento Black Ink, then I colored the images using my Copic Markers. I cut them all using Bear Friends Coordinating Dies and Fall Signs Coordinating Dies.

Next, I stamped Fall Borders on Neenah Desert Storm Paper using Distress Ink Antique Linen for a no-line look, then I colored in the images using my Copic Markers as well. After the coloring was done, I added more shades using my colored pencils. 

If you haven't tried Copic Markers coloring on kraft paper yet, I would definitely recommend you to try it as it is very easy and fun. The Neenah Desert Storm Paper is so smooth that Copic markers are blended very well on it. Since the paper is a little dark, your Copic colors are not as bright as those on white paper, which creates an overall tone-down look perfect for the autumn mood. Plus, you can hardly see coloring mistakes on this dark paper as well.  

Next, I adhered my colored images onto the kraft panel to create a lovely autumn scene. I also added pumpkins and leaves from Pumpkin Patch CrittersAutumn Wreath, and Giving Thanks Stamp set.

At first, I was doubtful of putting images that were colored on white paper with black lines onto a kraft background full of no line images. But, in the end, I love how it came out and I hope you'll like it, too. 

As a final touch, I adhered some Metallic Gold Jewels and Marigold Jewels and finished off my card.
Thanks for reading!
Happy Fall 😊
