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 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.
We are now entering into the Christmas holiday and my favorite time of year, WINTER! I will be back with some snowy projects and Christmas cards. Stay Tuned!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you come back soon!
