Day 3- Live, Laugh, Love

I hope you have enjoyed the blog hop so far. I know I love seeing what the other designers create.

For today's card, I wanted to show you one of the new Gary Robertson images. He has a bunch of new fall stamps this year.  As some of you already know, I am such a sucker for a rubber stamp with a pumpkin (or three) on it. They just make me happy.

Once again, I colored my image with Copic markers. Whenever I had a really small space to color, I switched to Prismacolor pencils instead.

Remember, we are having a blog hop every day this week to feature the new Impression Obsession products.  Here is the information you need to know to win an IO gift certificate:

Checking out the pumpkins and they are WONDERFUL! I really like your idea of using Copics AND colored pencils in the small places. I'm going to try that one! Your card is beautiful and I love the Tri-Pumpkin stamp!

What a GREAT Autumn image, Laura! Your coloring is beautiful. The stamp says it all, doesn't it? The hint of blue around the white center pops out the autumn colors in such a gentle, sweet way!

What a fun image! You did it justice with your coloring, too. I like how you shared that you used both markers and pencils on this. I can't tell; I just see wonderful! Thanks.

I love this stamp although there is a lot of coloring but using pencils in the smaller areas will probably make it go faster. Have always loved those words so this is definitely going on my wish list.
