Happy Harvest September Swap

  Here is the card I made for my September stamp club swap.  I hadn't used any of the new In Colors up until this card and wanted to rip that plastic off the ink pads and cardstock and get busy.  The layout was from some challenge that I saw.  I have no idea where as I just scribbled the sketch on scrap paper and piled it up on my desk so when I needed a starting point I would have one to go to.  Unfortunately I didn't write down where the layout was from.  If someone recognizes it please let me know so I can add that info.

   First, I stamped the right hand gourd in Stazon on Whisper White, then stamped the left hand gourd.  I masked both gourds and then stamped the pumpkin in the middle.  I used an Aquapainter and some ink on the lid of my ink pads and watercolored the images.

  I stamped the "Happy Harvest" from Loads of Love Accessories and  punched it out and sponged some Peach Parfait on the edges.  Behind this layer I used a strip of Pear Pizzazz that was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and I added a few black strips that were punched with the Scallop Trim border punch.  And few black brads tossed in for good measure.

  Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!
