Orange is the Color

Autumn, halloween, fall...................all wonderful reasons to use orange in your art work. That is if you are like me and rarely use orange, and need a reason!  It has been raining here pretty much non-stop since yesterday morning.   That pretty much slaps you in the face with with fall,   Orange screams 'halloween' to me so that is where I had to go for the challenge over at GingerLoft Challenges today!



The wonderful spooky pumpkins are from Tami at GingerLoft designs.  The candy corn DP is from DCWV Photo stack.  I used a versa-mark pen on a few of the top candies and used clear embossing powder on them.  Gives dimension without having to  do 3D.  Makes for much cheaper mailing costs!But then I went and ruined the postage costs by fussy cutting out 3 of the pumpkins and their vines and putting them on the card with dimensionals, LOL!
The sentiment is cut from the 'October 31' cartridge on my cricut and outlined with a glitter pen.  The ribbon and eyeball stickers are from my stash.  The image is cut out and backed with Spellbinder die cuts doing an outside the box technique (see lower left pumpkin).   Of course, all the coloring is with my copic markers. (doh!)

I love the embossing of just a few candy corn. It really adds to the card and I know just what you mean about postage. Anyway to make it regular postage, I am down with that.
What color Copics did you use for your oranges? That look fabulous! I have about 4 markers in the orange family and would love to expand a bit.
Thanks so much for playing at I Did it Creations this week. Best of luck to you on your fabulous card:)
