I tried something new with my coloring.  Nothing much, but it was fun to step a bit out of my coloring box.  I've noticed many Copic colorers using colors, other than black, to stamp their images with, and I like the results.  So, I stamped the pumpkin cart image with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink, Diecut it with the Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames Die set, and ink distressed the edges with Antique Linen Ranger Distress Ink.

Here are the Copic sets I used:
