The Great Pumpkin

It's funny, a few years ago, scene cards like this used to intimidate me.  Now I find enjoy the inky mess they make.  I started by penciling in the fence by hand.  I then stamped my pumpkin from MFP's Witchie set.  Afterwards, I masked the pumpkin and drew in the fence lines.  The moon is a punched circle.  I then started sponging my background.  The grass is Old Olive and Always Artichoke.  The sky is sponged in Pacific Point and Old Navy.  The one thing that I learned about sky scenes is strangely, they are more realistic when they have other colours than just blue or black.  In this one I added Blush Blossom and Cameo Coral along the horizon.  To keep the moon from being too stark, I added Sahara Sand with a little Memento Tuxedo Black. The fence and the pumpkin was then coloured with Copics.

I'm using this card for my entry for Speedy Fox and Friends challenge.  This week we are making scene cards with a fence.  It was fun.  Hope you'll play too.
