The October Digi of the Month challenge has already started over at Deedee's Digis. If you played in this progressive challenge last moth, you should have already received your freebie image for this month. If not, please contact Deedee through the challenge blog so that it can be sent to you. The set this month is called "Pumpkin Patch" and there's a photo of the full set at the bottom of this post.
First thing I must tell you is that I was inspired by a fellow DT, Kren @ A Fourth Life, and I just had to CASE the idea of the leaf embellies as she used them on this card. Although, I admit I got a bit carried away with the idea! Thanks, Kren, for the inspiration. :-D
For my card, I used the pre-colored image, used ProMarkers to add the sky and to color the scarecrow's shirt so that it was more red. All the leaves were individually hand-punched from scrap bits of CS, then added around the edge of the image, one by one. That piece was adhered to a card base made from shiny CS. I 'dyed' a white bow with a marker to get the shade of orange I wanted. The sentiment is also from the set.
Hey, it's Wednesday and that means we're half way to another weekend. Why do the weeks go so quickly as we get closer and closer to the holidays? Yikes, I already need more time to get everything done that I want to do before Halloween knocks on my door. Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
