Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkins Heather Telford

On the Penny Black blog this week you can find new fall and halloween stamps including the pumpkin patch cling stamp featured above. Before stamping the image I created a loose blue and yellow background by painting wet on wet with distress stains. When that was dry I inked the stamp with distress stains, spritzed it and stamped the image. I stamped the leaves a couple more times to fill the foreground. Once the stamping was dry I added some dimension and splatters with watercolour pencils then finished the card with mats and a die cut sentiment. I have noticed a few coloured leaves have fallen here and there but there are not yet pumpkins everywhere!

    Autumn and the harvest is nearly upon us now and the pumpkins will be growin fast. I love the bright orange of the pumpkins which is complemented so prettily by the paler blue and yellow in the background. x

    This reminds me that I need to get out my distress stains and work with them. I bought them due to your inspiration, put them in a box and keep forgetting about them. I definitely need to put them to the top of my to do list. I love all your creations using them. This is the prettiest pumpkin patch! Love the feeling of movement!
