Inchie Plus Pumpkins

So fun trying different mixed media combinations on Inchie Arts' Art Squares - I noticed another blogger combining alcohol markers and pastel pencils so I thought I'd try it out with my Touch Twin Markers and Cretacolor Fine Art Pastel Pencils.

I've been trying to get myself to use up or share supplies that have just been tucked away for years for no reason, so I'm working through several packages of window cards (they were on clearance at Michaels so I bought one of every style and color... 8 years ago before we moved overseas... still have them...). This simple square card was just the right size to frame an Inchie Plus Art Square (1.5"). I used a stamped image from JustRite Stampers, and colored in the base colors with Touch markers, then added shading with the pastels.

I haven't worked much with the pastel pencils, but they blended so smoothly and easily with a dry stump.  I'll be tucking this card into my Hope You Can Cling To box!
