Sparkly Pumpkins

Hi there!
Hope you all having a good beginning to your week. 
I'm stopping in today to share a card I made for the color challenge at the SSS Wednesday challenge blog and the Sparkle and Shine challenge blog.

I just fell in love with the purple and orange glitter pumpkins so I tried to recreate them.


I used the Happy Harvest stamp set from Lawn Fawn for the pumpkins. I originally stamped them all and colored with Copic markers, but once I covered them in double sided tape and covered in glitter I lost a lot of the color so I went directly on top of the glitter with my Copics. I sort of rubbed in the glitter to prevent as much fall out from the glitter as I could and then just colored right on top. This didn't seem to damage my marker tips at all and the glitter wiped off easily with a paper towel.
I used watercolor paper for my background and a grey Zig real brush marker for a subtle grey watercolor was in the background. All the dies I used are from Pretty Pink Posh and I will list them in the supplies below.

Thanks so much for dropping by today! Hope you enjoyed my sparkly pumpkins:)
Have a lovely day!
