Happy Harvest


Today's Sketch Challenge is a great one -- it's a simple layout that has many possibilities! To make the card base, I folded a 7x5" piece of white card stock in half, then backed it with a larger piece of Always Artichoke cardstock. For the panels on the card front, I used paper from Karen Foster Designs and Susan Branch. I crimped a piece of Always Artichoke to divide the panels. The image and sentiment are from Gina K. Designs. This stamp is one of my favorites! Going to the pumpkin patch is something I love to do with my family every fall, and this image reminds me of those times together. I stamped it with Stazon Timber Brown, then watercolored it with my aquapainter and inks -- More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, and Always Artichoke. I used Creamy Caramel ink on the ground and to highlight around the image. I sponged around the pumpkins with Soft Sky ink and sponged the edges of the panel with Pumpkin Pie. To embellish, I machine stitched around the cardfront with white thread, then I added a Prima Silk Road flower and some natural hemp twine. I mounted the image panel on dimensionals.

I'll be back tomorrow with my first sneak peek at the new C.C. Designs stamps! See you then! :)
