Watercolor Pumpkin
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  Have you started making fall cards yet?  If you know me, then you know that I am sucker for a pumpkin stamp.  I do have a lot of them!  They make me so happy.

To make the card, I used an assortment of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color my pumpkin.  I started with some Memory Box watercolor paper and then stamped my pumpkin using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  One of the tips I have when trying to color an image and decide where to add the shading is to look for any cross hatching in the design.  This pumpkin has a lot of cross hatching, so I used those places to be the darkest areas of the pumpkin.  I added brown marker over the cross hatched areas and then blended outwards using a dark orange marker.  I then continued to blend outwards using lighter markers.  The great thing about Zig markers is that you can't ruin them using a lighter marker over a darker one.  If you have any residual color on your light marker from a darker marker, all you have to do is scribble your marker onto scrap paper until the marker is "clean."  The darker marker won't stain your lighter marker.  For the lightest areas of the pumpkin, I used a waterbrush to drag the color from the darker areas into the lighter areas. 

Here is a close up of the coloring:


Have fun coloring your fall cards!
