My card uses today's colors from the challenge on Splitcoast. The wheat background was stamped on vanilla CS using Tangerine Tango ink and then misted with Tea Dye Distress ink/bronze perfect pearls. I ran the layer through my cuttlebug using the floral screen folder. The edges are sponged in Distress Walnut Stain. The sentiment (walnut stain) is stamped on vanilla that was die cut using Spellbinders Classic Scallop Rectangle. I sponged the center using Distress Dried Marigold ink and the edges with Shabby Shutters. The pumpkins are stamped on a vanilla shipping tag. I stamped the small one first and masked it off before stamping the bigger one. I lightly colored the images with copic markers and then used Pearlized Distress mist in Dried Marigold to add the wash and a little shimmer from the perfect pearls. All images available from

Rubbernecker Stamp Co.
