I also made this quick and easy card.
Before you head over to the acetate holder tutorial, I wanted to show you how I colored the pumpkins on the tag and on the card.
For the tag, I stamped the image on watercolor paper in Staz-On.
I inked up my craft sheet with Tim Holtz Dried Marigold Distress Ink.
Before applying color to my image, I like to "wet" the work surface.
Then I pick up some of the Dried Marigold off of the craft sheet and start "painting" the pumpkin.
Here is the image after several layers of color:
Then I started to "pull" the colors from the pumpkin out onto the surrounding area.
This allowed me to create highlights on the pumpkin and add some color to the watercolor paper.
Here I added some bling with my clear atyou Spica pen.
A quick and easy way to rough up the edges is to simply use your fingernail!
I used Copics on the card. The paper I used is Coconut Swirl (Bazzill).
I used the chiseled end to give the pumpkin a quick coat of Y17.
Then I went over it again to create some shading.
Here's the pumpkin as is:
Here is the same image with a touch of gray all around the image:
