Watercolored Pumpkins

Hi, it's Holly posting today!  I pulled out my Distress markers and relaxed by watercoloring these pumpkins last night.

I didn't have any plan in mind. I just pulled colors out and just colored for the fun of it. After I was done coloring, I let it dry overnight and then I put the card together.

I started by stamping the pumpkins from the Autumn Blessings from Flourishes with black Stazon ink onto watercolor paper.  After I let it dry a few minutes, I colored the image with the Tim Holtz Water Brush and the following Distress Markers:

Crushed Olive (grass)
Peeled Paint (grass)
Forest Moss (grass) - sold out
Vintage Photo (wheelbarrow)
Walnut Stain (wheelbarrow)
Mustard Seed (pumpkins, squash)
Spiced Marmalade (pumpkins, squash)
Dried Marigold (pumpkins, squash)
Wild Honey (pumpkins, squash)
Rusty Hinge (pumpkins)
Barn Door (berries)

Once the image was completely dry, I cut it out with the JustRite Vintage Labels Two Dies and sponged a little bit of Tea Dye distress ink around the edges.

I cut a card base (A2 size) from suede cardstock and folded it in half. I cut the gorgeous fall-themed paper from the Bo Bunny Autumn Song 6x6 paper pad, to 3.25" x 4.5" and matted it with a soft yellow cardstock.

Some sheer brown ribbon was tied around the bottom of this autumn paper layer and tied into a bow on the left side. Finally, I affixed the pumpkin image with some Joy! Foam Pads, Large, over the ribbon and the patterned paper and glued the whole thing down onto my suede card base.

I love how this turned out.  It just screams "fall" to me, and it's actually feeling like fall now.  I love this respite from the summer heat, and these rich fall colors always put me in a happy mood!

Cute card for fall! Thanks Holly!
