Shimmering Pumpkins


I have a card today, inspired by the challenge at Impression Obsession- Pumpkin Spice.  I had just purchased this adorable set, Pumpkin Kisses.  This is a big deal because I am NOT a Halloween fan.  But these pumpkins, and this fabulous sentiment- really spoke to me!
I had just the plan.  I wanted the card to look like a huge pumpkin patch, much like the one I like to visit in the Amish town of Arthur, Illinois.
This is what I ended up with~

I got out my Shimmerz Jeni B Bleu Vibez and Well Blue Me Down Coloringz.  I did some smooshing of these colors on watercolor paper, drying in between layers.  the Coloringz is a vibrant spray, while the Vibez is a spray with tons of shimmer!  Together, they are gorgeous.

The bottom portion of the card was water colored with this fabulous yellow, Dandy Lion Creameez.

I colored multiples of the trio of pumpkins with Copics and fussy cut them out.  They are so stinkin' cute!  I used the sketch at Fusion Card Challenge, although to accomodate my sentiment,
I had to turn the sketch to vertical.

Before adhering my pumpkins to the card base, I splattered some gold Miner Miner 49er Inklingz- lots of shimmering water color, and stamped my sentiment, doing some masking to split the sentiment, allowing for the pumkins in between.  a few sequins finish it off!

I am also linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes
