Playing with Copics

Today I played at a new site.  Copic Creations is a great little blog with challenges using your copic markers.  It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or an expert, the challenges are still fun.  This weeks challenge is to use shading on or around (or both) your image.  What a wonderful way to practice a skill that can always use work!   Here's my card:
The pumpkin is a digital image that I found on line.  I'm sorry I don't know the artist.  The cattails were done using an SU grass stamp in brown memento ink.  I then used a brown marker and then sparkly fluff (from Our Craft Lounge) to make the 'heads' of the cattails.  The leaves are a punch using glossy white paper and Ranger alcohol inks.  The inky dinky dots and the sunflower charm are from Inky Impressions.  The ribbon is from Michaels.  The DP is from my scrap basket.
The background behind the cattails was used by sponging memento inks.
The pumpkin is my main shading for the challenge.  I used the following copics for it:
Y02, Y21, Y38, YR04, YR07, T1, T3
On the stem I used:
E29, E33, E35
On the leaves:
YG03, YG09, YG67
