Hello friends! And thanks for waiting for today’s video, I know lots of you were anxious to see it when I showed you the card on Tuesday!

How to color a pumpkin patch

I’m often asked for color combos for very specific items – and pumpkins are one of them. Quite possibly because, if you’ve noticed, there’s no “Orange” in the Copic color families in the color wheel. Why is that? Possibly because “O” would be confused with zeroes, I’m guessing. So we need to use YRs, Rs, and sometimes Es to make a good orange combination. The pumpkins in the new Got Candy set are a perfect opportunity to practice oranges! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I think my favorite 2 parts of this card are 1) the layered pumpkins, with the front layer popped up on The Precious; and 2) the darling little ghosties from the Got Candy set! They’re so simple – and with the Glossy Accents they look so shiny in the moonlight!
