Fall Pumpkins

Good morning,

As you can tell, I've been into the Harvest Home stamp set. I stamped the images on Whisper White cardstock, except for the main image, which is on watercolor paper, and matted them with Basic Black.  I used Black StazOn ink so ink so it would bleed when I used water to blend the colors.

I used Stampin' Write markers to color the image and an aquapainter to blend them. I put Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the pumpkins for frost. and tied a narrow taffeta ribbon in Daffodil Delight in the corner. I also very lightly sponged Bashful Blue on the sky (I miss Soft Sky!)

The leaves were stamped with Black StazOn and colored with markers. I blended various colors that were in the main image.

The sentiment was done by coloring directly onto the rubber stamp and "huffing" to remoisten the ink before laying down the image. I matched the colors to the brads.

These Glimmer Brads are available in the Holiday Mini and a LOVE them! I find that with fall and winter cards they really add that frosty look.

It was a fun card to make. I like the line art and playing with the images. I guess I still like to color, you know?

Have a great day
Much love and joy,

    This is so beautiful! I can't believe it's almost Fall. I love all of the little bling touches.
