One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Fall card with pumpkins

I seem to be on a watercolor kick and enjoying it!
I smooshed some distress inks onto a plastic sheet, spritzed it, then smooshed my water color paper into the ink.  I used fossilized amber and wild honey.
I heat set it, then stamped my pumpkins with versamark and heat set with gold embossing powder.  (I did the large one first, then masked it before stamping the smaller one)
I water colored the pumpkins with my Zig Real Brush Markers. 
I felt it needed a bit more, so I splattered on some ripe persimmon distress ink.
I finished it off with some orange sequins and a twine bow.
The stamp is from Lawn Fawn:  So Thankful
Once again I am entering this into the AAA Cards : 48 Autumn colors
