I had been intrigued by the coloring technique on this pretty card by Colleen Schaan that is in the current issue of CardMaker magazine in which she includes a tutorial on the technique. I'll need a little more work, but it was fun to try and her directions were easy to follow. Here's a picture of her awesome card which was my inspiration to not only try the technique but use a pumpkin image.

I started by stamping my pumpkin in Stazon Timber Brown. I masked over it before stamping on the fall spray.
|I inked with Crushed Curry then added extra colors with my markers.|

|Here's my blank slate!|
