Halloween and Papertrey Ink Blog Hop
I have been having so much fun with the Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar Fall Additions sets from PTI that I just can't stop making cards with them. So today when Nicole announced that they were having a blog hop showing a favorite technique I had to play along. I have a couple of favorite techniques in this card. One is paper piecing. The jack-o-lantern at the bottom is paper pieced. I don't do it often but I love it when I remember to do it. Also I colored all of the other leaves, acorns, pumpkins etc. and when finished I used a Versamark pen to emboss everything. Sprinkled on some embossing powder and heat set it. After it was dry, I was able to color in the jar. And I think it makes the image pop when you use this technique. Thanks for letting me play along Papertrey! It was fun!
Until next time, Happy trails to you....
