Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Friends!  My card today uses the pumpkins from the Always Autumn stamp set.  Continue below to see how I colored them.


I selected the TN6 & TN4 markers for a rich brownish-orange look.


I started with the TN6 (my darkest tone) and added it on the edges of my first pumpkin and on the shading lines.


Next, I added the TN4, slightly overlapping.  Remember to work in small areas so the ink stays wet and blends better.


Next, I used the OR2 to get more orange in the pumpkin.


I added the TN3 for a bit of tan/gold.


Then I added some GB6 & OR1 for the center of the pumpkin.


Next I added a bit more depth of color by adding some Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils (92, 89, 22, 18) and blended the pencils with Gamsol blending solution and paper stumps.


Here's a close up of the first pumpkin.


When coloring the second pumpkin, I did the darker shades on both outside edges and worked toward the center with the lighter colors.

For the stems, I used TN4, TN7 markers and 94, 96 Blendable Colored Pencils.

And here are my finished pumpkins ~ up close. 


Enjoy!!!

I am very upset that everytime I see what I would like to learn and make you dont use the basic 72 Spectrum Noir colors.  Not all of us can afford to have them all.

I own copics and would appreciate you giving us alternative colors using them.  I spent a lot of money on these and feel cheated when the newbies come to town and you jump to them and leave us hanging.

Diane, I have that on my To Do List. However, I work ahead on tutorials & this one has been done for a while.  For this tutorial I wanted to show the depth of colors that can be achieved on the pumpkins with the full range of Spectrum Noir products.

Sandra - I was asked to do tutorials using Spectrum Noir products and that is all I have so I can't give comparisons with Copic colors.

I don't have all the markers, but this is what I do to make it work with what I have. I have printed out the fillable color carts for both the spectrum and the copics, and filling in with what Markers I have, then when I see coloring I would like to replicate I simply look to those sheets to see what I have and is the closest to the colors being used. I use them all the time!

You can find the spectrum fillable sheet

And the copic color charts here

I also printed out the filled in charts so I could use for comparison.

Hope that helps.
These tutorials are a lot of hard work and extremely generous of Kendra to do for everyone! Gina has requested that we only promote the spectrum noir because that is what she is selling and that is what every company that sells products does. But using what you have is a wonderful way to experiment on your own and using these tutorials as a jumping off point! We pride ourselves at stamp TV in offering free tutorials and are so happy that most of our members really appreciate it!
Thank You Kendra for sharing your talent with us. I love your tutorials. They give me great inspiration. BBeautiful

Hi, just doing some research on coloring pumpkins with Copics and YouTube has many tutorials on using Copics to color your pumpkins.

Appreciated this tutorial. I'm just starting out with these markers and anything like this is helpful. I need to figure out which shades to use and because these seem very basic, it's helpful. I know it just takes practice. And practice means I don't have time for housework!! Thanks.

I also use the sheets this way - works great! And I also use it as a tool to see what set I would like to buy next. Great work Kendra - I love your tutorials.
