Watercolor Weekend | Thankful Pumpkin Trio

Watercolor Weekend | Thankful Pumpkin Trio

I am featuring my last Fall project for Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend.  I thought this would be perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

Card Details – Watercolor Weekend | Thankful Pumpkin Trio

I used the pumpkin stamp as a container for the fall flowers.  I first inked half of the pumpkin stamp with African Violet and Sepia.  I wanted my pumpkins to be white, leaving off the top of the pumpkin to allow for the flowers to spill out the front and sides.

I added the leaves in Brilliant Yellow, Orange and English Red.  I softened each layer after I stamped it so that I could layer each color easily.  I stamped the wheat (I think that i what it is LOL) in Brilliant Yellow.  I softened it and then inked the Lily stamp up with Terra Cotta and Olive Green.  I then added the branch with the red berries inked with Sepia and English Red.

I cut these out using a square stitched die.  I cut a piece of Sweet Mango cardstock to back the middle image.

I created the background by using alcohol inks on photo paper.  I cut the shadow of the Thankful die out of this layer.  I backed it on a piece of Cranberry Tart cardstock.  I cut the word thankful from Sweet Mango cardstock.

I am starting to get into the Christmas spirit, how about you?  It’s that time of year again where I need to get a jump on my Christmas cards.  I send out about 60 cards each year and most of them are different (because I get bored easily, lol) so they take a bit of time.  Today I thought I would video the creation of this Christmas Window.  It was so easy and fun to do, I hope you will head over to my YouTube channel and check it out.

Watercolor Weekend | Fall Cabin

Watercolor Weekend | Fall Cabin

Welcome back to another Art Impressions Watercolor Weekend.  We are now at the end of the Fall season and most of the trees here in NH have lost their leaves.  I have been doing quite a bit of watercolor paintings with Fall in full bloom, so I thought I would do a Fall Cabin with most of the leaves underneath the trees.
