Pumpkin Patch Thanks

Lawn Fawn Spooktacular, Scripty Thanks, Simon Says Stamp Zig Zag

This autumn I was fascinated by all the white & gold pumpkins to be seen on the interweb, I wasn't brave enough to do it myself so I'll have to live vicariously through my cards. Virginia's View All Things Metallic Challenge has allowed me to indulge in my creative impulses without upsetting the kids who just wanted to carve the pumpkins. I've taken inspiration for my pumpkin patch from the Lawnscaping's Fall & Pumpkins Challenge and The Card Concept's Thank "fall" Challenge.

I've masked the face from my pumpkins and stamped in gold ink. Shading was added with a Cool Grey 3 ProMarker and a Bronze gel pen was used to colour the stalks. The pumpkins were then decorated using masks & gold embossing paste and stamps. The masked chevron stencil border echoes the wooden cladding in the photo inspiration.

At this time of year at 53ºN and with low pressure about, the quality of light is not all that you would wish, so my photos are a little darker than I would like. Oh for a photographic studio, but then I'd have to find another excuse!
