Happy Harvest Digital Stamps by Artful Inkables

I love all the fall images I'm seeing on everyone's cards, it's difficult not to collect them all!  I found this cute little crow at Artful Inkables earlier this month and couldn't resist, I did for about 24 hours and then had to go back and make him mine!  

I've had some of the Copic markers in the "toner" family that I've been wanting to try.  I'm not crazy about coloring "black" images because I worry they aren't going to look good and the dark grays are those colors that tend to bleed out of the lines, etc.  I also know that to be good at anything I need to practice and it's only paper for heaven's sake!  So I tried the toner grays on this cute crow and was happy with how it came out.  I used T1, T3 & T5 and was careful not to over saturate my paper, which is Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White.

I had a sketch on my computer screen for this card and my card looks nothing like the original sketch, I mostly liked the idea of the tabs where the sentiment "Happy Harvest" went.  The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with the Stampin' Up! Word Window punch and matted with black.  This crow comes as a set with the Happy Harvest sentiment but there's an apple attached that I couldn't cut around or edit out so I made my own.  The papers are by My Minds Eye that were purchased in the clearance section of an online store this last summer.  I also used Spellbinders dies for the rectangles and circles.
