Fall gratitude

Hello! It’s Donna here from donnaisplayingpaper, and I’ve been playing with watercolours this week.

This lovely pumpkin is from the Season of Change stamp set, and it would be a great stamp to use for Halloween pumpkins as it has a cute little face on it. Today, I decided to ignore the face and watercolour a background using this image.

I stamped the pumpkins all over some watercolour paper, changing the angle each time, and heat embossing in white. I found that I had to do a few at a time, because they were very hard to see with just the embossing ink. I first painted the whole background in the soft yellow colour, including the pumpkins. I then went over with a light orange a dark orange, and a deep burgundy colour to shade each pumpkin. The leaves were painted using just a touch of olive green.

The sentiment comes from the same stamp set, and he banner was cut using the Sunny Cover die.

Finally I added the bottom panel, using one of the checks in the Pumpkin Spice Paper Pad which I cut with the dies in the Scallop Waves die set.

This finished the card. I have plenty of need for thank you cards at the moment, as all our new friends and colleagues in our new country are doing such a good job of taking care of us.

Until next time, happy crafting!
