Water Colored Pumpkin

Give Thanks

 Well I'm having fun playing with color......
IN-COLORS that is. They really seem to pop when adding black and vanilla for a deep contrast.

Both of the images were stamped with Black Staz-on INK # 101406 on vanilla CS and then WATERCOLORED using the In-Colors classic ink pads and an AQUAPAINTER# 103954.

1. Start watercoloring with your lightest ink color     first.
    I used In-Color Crushed Curry# 115659 

TIP:  Spread a thin layer of water all over your image first...it will help your ink flow more evenly.

2. The next color that was used is In-Color 
     Dusty Durango#115654

3. And finally In-Color Bermuda Bay# 115655

The pumpkin image from the stamp set Harvest Home # 111642 was cut out along the edges of the stamped image and then mounted to a piece of 
Bermuda Bay CS # 115317 measuring 1 3/4" by 1 3/4". Increase your next layer by 1/4" on 2 sides to form a 2" by 2" piece of Crushed Curry# 115319.

The largest brown layer , SOFT SUEDE# 115318 measures 3 1/4" by 2 3/4" and
the smaller layer 3 1/2" by 1". They are both stamped with
 SOFT SUEDE classic ink# 115657 and the 
SANDED background stamp # 109294. Don't you just love the texture it creates.

Back panels measure...
Basic Black   3 3/4" by 5"
Dusty Durango   3 1/2" by 4 3/4"

TIP:  Try to cut your layers in 1/4" intervals, then increase or decrease your next layer by 1/4" on both sides.
The thin black strip on the small brown layer measures 3  3/4" by 1/4"

My LITTLE LEAVES #114511 were die cut using my BIG SHOT #113439 and stamped with Soft Suede and the Sanded BG stamp.

The GIVE Thanks sentiment using THE MORE THE MERRIER # 115332 hostess set was stamped and colored using the same method as the pumpkins. Use circle punches 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" to cut out and layer your sentiment.

The Crushed Curry square behind the sentiment measures 1 1/8" by  1 3/8".

For your final touch add 2 black WORD WINDOW punch # 105090 tabs and insert 2 VINTAGE BRADS # 109109before attaching the whole thing to a VANILLA CS base.

Hope this inspires you!
