Fall Is Finally Here

Well I must say that I'm quite excited about this card. It is one of the new sets from the Holiday Mini. I received it as a gift and I just LOVE IT!!! It's just the perfect set to watercolor to. Something I think looks great, but I seriously need more practice at. The set also comes with a Halloween face to make it a bit more versatile. I used the masking technique for this, meaning that I stamped one of each size pumpkin on a plain piece of white paper, cut them out, and placed them in the picture to stamp over, so the lines to the pumpkin in back would not show through. I love the look of this, though I rarely have the patience to stamp and cut an extra anything, much less two of them. For this it was so worth it. I love the way it turned out. I also did some sponging with the creamy carmel around the edges. It seems that I am in sponging mode at the moment. Everything I do seems to need a little bit of sponging to give it that something extra. Hopefully the weather will cool off soon and really start to feel like Fall.
