Pumpkin Patch

Hello Again,

I have been busy in my craft room but not so busy blogging. As a result, I'm here playing catch up. For today I am playing along with Mod Squad Challenge Blog, Just Us GirlsCards in Envy, and Creative with Stamps. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This card was stamped on watercolor paper using the
Pumpkin Background stamp from Peddlers Pack.
Tombow markers were applied directly on the stamp using various colors.
Then used an aqua pen to spread the color where I wanted it. 
The pumpkin panel is lifted off the checkered card base by dimensional foam. I also added a foam sentiment that is layered over dark brown cardstock. I offset the cardstock for yet, another layer of dimension.

Like the season, Fall is full texture and color which is what I wanted to convey on this card.

Stamping the same image multiple times proved to be a challenge for me that day.
Somehow the paper moved just a bit and I ended with a double image.
At first, I was understandability irritated but then I looked at it again and thought this is beautiful.
I continued stamping using the double image and went right in to blend the colors out.
When I was finished I moved the paper to its original spot and stamped it one last time using Expresso Brown Momento Ink. The image turned out clear and crisp with a dreamy watercolor feel. Perfect!
Challenges Entered:

As with most fall weather parents, we bundle up our little ones and send them off to the pumpkin patch with camera in tow ready for a fantastic fall day. However, upon arriving you come to realize you were not the only parent to the have this brilliant idea! So you wait in line for the hayride headed for the patch. You finally get there when it starts to drizzle. Kids are getting wet, tired, and cranky. At this point in the day, you would pick the first pumpkin you found but your kiddos soon realize they have a major choice choosing their pumpkin! Now that it has been drizzling for a bit the pumpkin patch is now a dirty place full of pumpkins caked with mud and you, not getting a single picture. I guess I didn't need a picture because these memories are precious, happy, and delightful to recall. I wouldn't take it back for all the pumpkins in the world.

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.
