Welcome blog hoppers to the 5th stop of the Oldies but Goodies blog hop. I want to share an Oldies But Goodies Stamp I purchased some years ago, when I first started into this hobby. I saw this stamp by The Artful Stamper, done in watercolor in one of our local stamp shops. When hunting for a stamp for the OBG blog hop, I thought of this stamp. OK, as usual, my image is colored with copics on Copic Xpress paper.The image was stamped with Versamark, then embossed with Ranger's Queen's Gold, prior to coloring.(use copics carefully on embossed images to avoid nib damage). I chose to use some blue-violet at the stalk of the punkin, because I thought it enhanced the oranges in the pumpkin. Used Spellbinders Circle & scalloped circle to diecut the image and the mat. I chose the purple color for the scalloped mat, then sponged some Distress Ink Concord around the edges as I wanted to emphasize the violet shade in the image. The papers are snippets that I had used for other projects and were handy on the desk. I used an MS border punch on the center panel, again selecting one that might emphasize the curlicues on the pumpkin stem. Hope you enjoy this card, and as always, thanks for visiting.
