Color Throwdown #468 {Autumn Wishes}

I'm back today with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! I'm so thrilled to be this month's guest designer! I'm loving this week's Fall colors and so I went with something traditional in theme with some rustic touches that scream Autumn to me! You can check out the challenge HERE as well as see some fabulous inspiration from the Throwdown Team. 
I was so happy to be able to put this adorable Autumn Scarecrow set to good use again before Autumn turns to Winter and it's put away until next year. I was literally down to SCRAPS of Stamper's Select White Cardstock and it was making me crazy, but I had just enough to get some images stamped and die cut. My order arrived with a whole new pack so I am sitting pretty again! I colored the images using Copic and Prismacolor markers in the challenge colors. I also added a generous helping of Wink of Stella to portions of the pumpkins, the leaves and a bit on the scarecrow. 

I used a white gel pen to add some cross-hatching to the scarf and hat for some added detail and interest. I also added a few highlights to the pumpkin as well. {Tip for the day}...I also use a white gel pen when I accidentally color outside of the outer lines. It's never TOO bad, but the white gel pen covers those little mistakes up nicely! However, I'm sure you NEVER make any mistakes, right? {wink}

I die cut a piece of Kraft Cardstock using the To the Point Edger Dies and layered it on top of a piece of Thanksgiving inspired pattern paper that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. It coordinates nicely with the pattern papers that I used in THIS project. I just used this one today because it included the challenge colors. All of those pieces are added to a brown card base for some contrast and to ground the card. I got to work building the scene once everything was adhered to the base.

I added the sentiment up in the corner, stitching it down using my sewing machine. I also used my Color Spritzing tool using a Chocolate Chip SU! marker here and there for some added interest. A bow of Rustic Jute Button Twine to finish this design! Thanks for fluttering by and I hope you get a chance to play along!

Kelly congrats.. they sure do know how to pick their guests - tee hee!
LOve your card, and every last bit of detail you've added!
one question? what is a spritzing tool? because I think the resulting spritzing makes this card SO special!

Thanks, Michele! I'm having a lot of fun. I bought the Color Spritzing Tool back in my SU! days. It is kind of like an airbrush, but you just manually squeeze an air filled bulb to spritz bursts of ink. I'm not sure if they still carry it, but I LOVE mine.
