I have a darling jar, but decided I'd take my inspiration from the pumpkin painted on the white one in the photo - did you see it? a fun way to 'contain' my Reverse Confetti cotton bolls for IB#96 …
After stamping Dee's pumpkin onto white card stock, I used a loose watercoloring to color it with DOX broken china, and vintage photo inks. Then I 'carved' it with a bit of hand-drawn stitching lines, and scissors. A CAS bit of framing with a Spellbinder's Hemstitch die, and a sentiment from RC's Fall Foliage that makes this a pretty untraditional Thanksgiving card... but, it works, right? lol
Hope you've had a fantastic week … thanks for spending a bit of your precious time with me! If you have a bit more to spare, we'd love it if you'd join us this week - I know you have a jar, fill it with anything your heart desires!
gorgeous, love your mix of stamps!
Beautiful non-traditional colors for this sweet thanksgiving card Michele! The blue toned pumpkin is the perfect vase for your cotton ball bundle.
Love the way you went with this one, Michele! I love the pale blue pumpkin, and the hemstitching is the perfect frame!
Talk about lovely watercoloring, this is a great example. The colors are so beautiful together and framing it with that die is perfect.
LOVE your blue pumpkin "vase"...and seeing your diecut frame reminded me that I have something very similar...and HAVEN'T USED IT AT ALL!!! That's what happens when you have too much stuff! AND...thank you for my little package in the mail...I delivered Miss Cassidy's envy to her mommy today and I am looking at your card right now! :D
Absolutely stunning card, Michele! Your 'blue' pumpkin is fabulous and I love how you framed out your focal point...so elegant!
What a fun pumpkin pot!!
Love your "jar," Michele. SO pretty in blue. You've colored is beautifully. All the detail here just makes me smile. Beautiful!!
Beautiful cotton comfort, love the non traditional Thanksgiving.
I love your pale blue pumpkin filled with cotton bolls, Michelle! That hem stitch die made me go shopping a while ago. This is a great reminder that I need to get it out and use it!
Clever to pick up on the pumpkin and make a vase. Such a unique and beautiful card x.
Making the light blue pumping a jar by carving the top! What a wonderful interpretation, Michele! Your loose watercoloring is so beautiful! Love it!
Oh that divine blue pumpkin! Love how beautiful this card is!
