My card today was inspired by The Paper Players Challenge
I think I may have strayed just a wee bit from the clean and simple aspect, so if it does not qualify, I understand. I would have been ok if I hadn't created the background, but I couldn't resist. I do have a problem keeping to CAS! But, I wanted to share anyways, and I'll take the chance.
I love fall, and all things autumn and fall. I have been seeing those white pumpkins everywhere in the stores, and think they are so adorable, and something different. So, I decided to use this inspiration for my card.
Stamps: Penny Black 'pumpkins' cling stamp 40-145, Penny Black Letter Background 1999L, and Penny Black Curly Foliage 1993J.
I white embossed the pumpkins, then watercolored them using Derwent Inktense water pencils. For the background, I stamped the swirl background stamp in Memories dye white ink pad, and the script background with Tim Holtz distress ink. I used a Copic marker around the outside of the pumpkins to make them stand out and give them some shadow. I used my Clarity stamp brush with some distress ink to distress along the edges of the card.
I did not have a stamp I really wanted for the verse, and I liked the word 'harvest' on the inspiration picture. I decided to go for it and hand letter. Unfortunately, that is when my white Uniball Signo pen decided to not play nice, and would simply not work. So, after playing around with it trying to make it write, I decided to go to plan B. I hand lettered the word with my Prismacolor white pencil. I sharpened it as sharp as I could get it, and went for it. I outlined it with a light tan Copic marker on the left side to help it stand out.
Some spatters of white and brown, and some Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen finish off the card.
