Patterned Paper!!!


Okay, I am starting to get the hang of this patterned paper thing. I think I really like using all this patterned paper. Uh oh!!! I see a new "trend" in my stamping style emerging. LOL!!!

I already told you how much I love this stamp set: Autumn Harvest (so you won't hear me boast about it again). It's just so darned easy to color in!!!

I once again used my watercolor wonder crayons and my aquapainted to color in my pumpkins. I used More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust to build the colors. The leaves are More Mustard, Old Olive, Ruby Red and Bravo Burgandy. All of the watercoloring is done on watercolor paper.

I did a lot of sponging on this card with Close to Cocoa. I toned down the edges of all the layers and also on the River Rock double stitched grosgrain ribbon. It's now just the right color for this card!!!

I love the final result.....I hope you do too!!! Leave a comment if you do......I could really use the boost of confidence today!!!

Happy stamping!!

Very pretty! I really need to make something with that set. I loved it too from the mini, but have yet to ink it up! Thanks for sharing!
