Masking with Newton’s Nook

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share a card I created for Inky Paws Challenge #57 from Newton’s Nook. 
A little warning, if you see typos I’m truly sorry. I got a new computer yesterday and I am having the hardest time getting used to the keyboard for some reason. I’m trying to catch the typing errors but some may slip through. 
Onward to the card! Like I said, I have a new computer, and Apple Air. I worked on setting it up all day and needed to immerse myself in a card. So I did some masking and if you follow my blog you know I don’t like to fussy cut haha. But it took my mind off of things.
The Inky Paws challenge is creating a card that is Fall Themed and when I think of Fall, pumpkins and leaves come to mind. I used a couple images from the Bootiful Night stamp set. I created a mask for both images and then stamped onto my card. Before I did anything else, I stamped my sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with black embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp.
I applied my masks and then distressed the background with Faded Denim and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink for the sky. I used Peeled Paint distress ink for the bottom.
I noticed as I was writing up my blog post that I didn’t shade UNDER my pumpkins on the grass. I actually should have added shading there because they are sitting on the ground but completely spaced it.
Then I colored my images in copic markers. I finished off the card by layering it onto some white and orange cardstock. For a finishing touch, I added Dandelion Yellow Nuvo drops to the pumpkin faces and a couple Nuvo Morning Dew drops around the card.
