Hi my blogland friend we meet again at the first date of the month it means a new monthly challenge at House of Cards, this time the theme is Add Texture and/or Color Challenge. 



autumn palette

I remember last year in October too Mynn the Owner of House Of Cards, ever show us how to make pumpkin using puncher. Look at this Oktober (2014) post if you interested to see how to make the pumpkin like I did :)




I CASE-ing Mynn Card (Mynn I love much your Pumpkin card and always remember it in my brain, also this time I CASE-ing your card) see here, but the color I change and try to mimic the graphic above.

This is not my Card but Card from Mynn :)

I try to give texture to my card, I used the swiss dots embossing folder, I have got from my lovely blog friend named KITTY, dear Kitty ...I am so in love with this embossing folder and She even gave me before I own Big Shot...many many thanks dear Kitty...you are so a generous lady :)

Here is the closed Pumpkin I made, For the background I sponged 4 different colors of distress ink in orange and green. I dont have anymore puncher leaf like I want also I stamped an old leaf stamp and fussy cut it

-------------------------------------------------

My second card, I used my OLD COLLECTION of my RUBBER STAMP from Pink Cat Studio.


I made my own background paper using my circle puncher from SU:



As my Copic Marker Collection is not so much, I decided to color the lady with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor, and that tiny bird with Copic marker.



I asked my hubby where to put the sentiment...this time I choose his idea (hope its not a wrong place hehehe SMILE) he said not near the Image but at the top right side..

  16. The inked background is so perfectly executed, the colors you've blended so beautifully and I love the way you did the pumpkins. I must have missed that tutorial, but I'm going to check it out this time. A wonderful case of Mynnette's card.
    Your sassy card is so fun with all the punched circles and your hubby was right about the placement for the sentiment. Cute, fun and sassy!
