Hi friends, I’m back this week on the blog while Heather takes a well needed break! Today I’m going to show you the August Kit of the Month. This is a membership kit that you can subscribe to and have a new one delivered to your doorstep each month! If you love autumn season, then you are in for a treat with this kit! Here it is below:
This kit is CHOCK FULL of everything that is autumn! I had a hard time deciding what to use, but the pumpkin background stamp was pulling at my heartstrings. This is such a beautiful and detailed autumn stamp. Here is my card featuring the KOM:
First step was to stamp the KOM onto a white card panel using permanent black ink. I use permanent black ink when I am going to color with alcohol markers because it won’t bleed. Next, I colored the pumpkin orange, and then decided to make that pumpkin the focal point, so all the pumpkins around this one were in blue or light brown. I colored the sunflowers in yellow and brown. Then I went back in with a colored pencil to add shading. You can see the details in the photo below.
Once the coloring was finished, I trimmed the card panel and adhered it over black cardstock so that just a peep of black showed behind it. Then I stamped Buffalo Check background stamp in Gina K Design’s Powder Blue ink, trimmed that card panel and placed it over black cardstock as well. Then I adhered everything onto a white card base and finished with a sentiment from the August Kit of the Month. So I had alternating layers of white, black, and color! I love how the black compliments the beautiful shades of blue, yellow, and orange! This is an easy and effective trick to add detail and pop to your focal point!
