Dreamy Tombow

Hi all!  It's time for Stampendous Dreamweaver Thursday and today I have a card that's all about fall and a fun new technique I've never tried before called Subtractive Eraser Technique.  Well, it's new to me, anyway.  Some of you may have already tried it out!  If you've never tried it before, here's a link to the video that shows how.  I really wanted to add a pop of color to mine so I did!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Stampendous® Dreamweaver© Stencil LL515 Pumpkins
Stampendous® Mixed Media White Paper
Tombow® Recycled Colored Pencils, 24-Pack Tin
Tombow® Mono Zero Eraser, Silver Round
Tombow® Mono NP Eraser, Non PVC
Tombow® Mono Drawing Pencil, 2B
Bo Bunny® Apple Cider Collection 6x6 Paper Pad
Onyx and Tiger's Eye Gemstone Cardstock by Core'dinations®
Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Tim Holtz®
Scrapbook Adhesives® 3D Foam Mounting Squares by 3L®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives

Here's what I did to create this card:

As stated above, I used the Subtractive Eraser Technique, I did add pencil back into the design and I used colored pencils on the middle pumpkin, add distress ink and set aside
Create an A2 card base with a tent fold with the Tiger's Eye CS
Trim pumpkin patterned paper for background
Trim a piece of the other patterned paper and a piece of the Onyx CS slightly larger, dovetail both
Adhere layers as shown using foam squares to attach image

Here's the list of my teammates that are posting today; I hope you'll leave them some love:
