Neat & Tangled Hello Pumpkin 2017

Simon Says Stamp held their Stamptember 2017 event.  In their collaboration with Neat & Tangled, they introduced a limited edition stamp set called Hello Pumpkin.  I decided to use the skills I have been building from Kit & Clowder’s pencil classes along with stamping and created this card.  I stamped the bear.  I stamped the tree trunk and added the mouse on top of it.  I added the fall leaves and mushroom.  This is a single layer card.  Now that I have the basic idea planned out, I was ready to get started.  Using my Prismacolor pencils,  I colored in the images then proceeded to try and make a background.  I sketched in the tree behind the bear and colored it in.  I wasn’t sure about adding the sun and the rays, but gave it a shot. This is where the paper and how you lay your color down really makes a difference.  I had a hard time blending out the blue so you see the streaks, but in the end it I think it looks ok.  I practiced picking my colors and blending them smoothly. I love how the bear and mouse turned out.  I added lots of detail to the tree stump, following the details the artist included.  Then, I let my imagination create the rest of the scene.  I hope you like the final card I’ve made.
