Funky Fossil Designs "Autumn Glory" Card

I've been playing with a stencil by Funky Fossil Designs called "Autumn Glory" to create this card. 

I've had this stencil a while and just hadn't got round to using it.  I wish I had, I think it has William Morris vibes!

I lay the stencil over the top of a piece of card, securing with low tack masking tape. I created a mask of the central pumpkin and covered the area.  I then used three shades of Archival Ink (Prickly Pear, Leaf Green and Fern Green), with a blending brush to fill in the foliage area.

I removed the stencil and the mask and then coloured the pumpkin, using Derwent Inktense water colour pencils applied with a brush.  I also used a white and black Van Goch pastel pencils.  I coloured the dots with a copper glitter pen.

Finally, I filled in the edges of the card.  First I used "Wild Honey" and the "Rusty Hinge" Distress Oxide Inks. 


  1. Love this and the derwent inktense pencils honestly you can't beat those, even the TH water colour pencils don't reach the standard x

    1. Thank you. I know what you mean about the TH pencils, but I like that the colours match the inks etc.

  2. fabulous colouring on the pumpkin and stencilled leaves
