I was so determined to use this fabulous pumpkin stamp from Verve's latest Fall Release...but as I started paper piecing it, I got WAAAAYY over my head!! LOL So I decided to watercolour it :) I stamped the image onto watercolour paper with Versafine Onyx (my goto black ink), then applied the ink with my aquapen. Notice too that I took my purple and black ink pads and sponged a bit on to add a worn look to the panel. I also wanted so much to use some of this gorgeous Halloween ribbon that I first saw on Ann's blog before jumping into the car and heading to Michaels to buy my own :) So who do you send a "Happy Harvest" card to? Well, I have the perfect people for this card...the lovely couple who owns the farm and pumpking patch where I took my class last week. They are the sweetest :) I always have the kids write a little thankyou note so I thought this could be my note to them :) They definitely have a harvest!! LOL I'm using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch as the big oval was perfect for the pumpkin stamp. The only tricky thing was the layering of the background papers...I had all my orange, green and purple paper out and it was driving me crazy!! LOL I had to make sure the paper didn't upstage that ribbon!!! Hola!!! LOVE IT!! Before I go, I wanted to share a picture of our pumpkin last night. It's the pumpkin I got at the farm last week. Tony carved it Saturday night ready for Sunday :) And because we were going to make our little pumpkin sick (too much candy!), Tony added some sad eyes to him....isn't it sweet? LOL Have a great day...I'm off to see if my class is super tired or super hyper!! LOL
