Already at week two of My Pumpkin Challenge #1115 - Share A Caring Thought! I'm excited to try a fall version of my Pumpkin kit inspired by Just Add Ink #287's colors!
When I saw the inspiration pic at Just Add Ink, I knew I'd be focusing on my "frond" stamps, I just wasn't sure how! I ended up using a VERY basic layout, so I could really highlight the color pops I hoped to bring out. Then I got a little stuck. Should I sponge? Mist? Ah ha! I still have my "spritzer!" A long time ago, Stampin' Up! used to have this "spritzer" tool, that you could insert a marker into, and with a quick puff of air pumped by hand, get a little splatter of ink. Oh, the messes I used to make! They were epic! Of course, there's a reason I don't use the mister too much, too, lol... After I stamped my leaves over my spritzed square, I wanted to add even more fall color, so I aqua-painted my fronds for the final effect. A few touches of gold, and we're set!
So, how's your Pumpkin this month? I think it wants to come play!
