Watercoloured PumpkinsPosted: August 10, 2012
As Penny Black continues to reveal new stamps I have a watercoloured card featuring the new Pumpkins stamp. This card is a little “busier” than my usual CAS designs but I managed to persevere to the end and include six layers!
To create the pumpkin picture I wet the watercolour paper and stamped the pumpkins in Memento Peanut Brittle ink which immediately bled into the wet paper. I then coloured the pumpkin, stems and leaves with watercolour pencils, added some ‘ground’ and let it dry. Once dry I stamped the pumpkins again in Versafine Vintage Sepia and added some blue sponging in the background.
I covered the card front with some of the new Madison designer paper from Penny Black and stuck a little bit on my rolled corner too.
Better get back to the Olympics coverage; we have been very impressed with the Australian team and we get excited about the Canadians too – as long as there isn’t an Aussie in the mix! Seriously we are just loving watching world class sport every day.
