Oh, and a pumpkin card too!
(and just a reminder that there's only 3 more days left to get the Pumpkin set that I used on my card below for free with ANY purchase at doodlepantry.com!)
I just had to watercolor up the Pumpkin for a thank you/inspirational card I need to send to a friend. I wanted it to just pop off the paper in a bright pumpkin color. I wanted this baby to shout "I'm the best pumpkin in the patch!". Oh and I wanted to capture all the rich fall colors. The pattern papers that come with the Pumpkin set helped with that.
I made a 5-1/8" square easle card.
I printed the image on 90 lb. watercolor paper. Watercolored the Pumpkin using Tombow markers and a waterbrush. Sealed my finished image with acrylic sealing spray.
Here's a close up of the pumpkin. I sized it to about 2-1/2" across so that it would be easier to color the vines.
The sentiment on the front and on the inside both come from a set called Merciful & Good. Here is the inside. A nice little space for a note. The sewing around the hole was difficult, but I think it really added a special touch to the inside.
