I fully intended to play along much earlier than I did (which is mere hours before the link closes), but play I did, using the lovely Gorgeous Gourds over at Curtain Call as my image inspiration.
No surprise that waiting until last minute comes along with a few bumps in the process - like poor lighting for photographing, as well as using new products that maybe should be tested out further in advance (the watercolour paper is my 'bone of contention' here - should have stayed with my old tried and true stuff), but I'm okay-ish with my little 'out of the box' creation. In real life, my background papers actually are white, my pumpkin is a richer, prettier shade of "tumbled glass" with leaves of "peeled paint" and the sequins aren't quite as sparkly as they appear (then again, why I used sequins with watercolour/distress inks is just plain odd!). Anyway, it's a bit cute, a bit whimsical and a bit different...
Since you've stopped by, I'll invite you to a 'no more talking from me' showcase of my gallery of baby cards I made last week for my sister-in-law's mom. A lot of newborns arriving in her circle of friends and family in the next short while (she's already asked for four more!):
Inspiration for the chickie baby cards is here.
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
