Feeling Fall-y

I was just in a pumpkins kind of mood today. I snapped up this cute little pumpkin image in the dollar bin at the craft store and I couldn't wait to color it with my Copics. I'd been having some trouble with getting a crisp black image with my Memento Ink. It left little hairs and white spots and for some reason when coloring I starting picking up black I reached out to Jen del Muro who recommended Brilliance. Even after heat setting I'm still picking up black ink when coloring so I'm changing paper. I bought some PaperTrey Ink paper. I will keep you posted on how this works. You can see this problem a bit in the detail image, but at a distance you can't really see it.

Speaking of Jen del Muro...the layout of this card was this week's Sketch for You to Try.
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Old Olive, matching but retired dsp all from SU!
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copic markers
Accessories: pop-up dots, ribbon is from my stash, scallop border punch(SU!), circle Nestabilities(Spellbinders)
Thanks for reading!
