With Gratitude

I played with a sketch from Heather's blog and some new Core'dinations paper I just purchased.

I used 2 stamp sets, Give Thanks and Label Lingo (a hostess set). Can you see the edge of the medium brown cardstock on the right? It's backside has the white stamped piece layered on it. I just love those 2 colors together! The dark brown is from the Bazzil Browns package. I stamped the images using Burnt Umber and Noir PH inks. I like how the Burnt Umber gives a softer look. I colored the pumpkin using my H2O pencils and my Niji Water Brush. I had the little square brads from Creative Impressions that TAC™ used to carry. The blue was a perfect match!!

Here is a closeup of the pumpkin so you can see my coloring. You can't quite make out that I added some pale gray around the outside of the pumpkin and as a bit of a shadow at the bottom. I really like how this turned out. What do you think??

Your card is beautiful! I do love that cardstock, and will just have to get some. You did a great job coloring, and then stamping over it. I love this card!
