"We do not remember days, we remember moments." Cesare Pavese

Hey!! Can't believe August is almost over!! Time flies when you are having fun, right?? I have been experiencing a lack of mojo again and this morning decided to do some watercoloring. I have had this beautiful Penny Black stamp called "Pumpkins" for ages and have hardly used it (sadly I have too many stamps like that!!). I decided to get it out and color it up with my ZIGS. Stamped the image with Vintage Sepia and then colored the pumpkins with a combination of orange and yellow markers and a limited amount of water. I have to say that I'm really, really pleased with how everything turned out! The sentiment is from the AJVD Pretty Posies stamp set. I decided to use the current Freshly Made Sketches layout for my card and so I will be adding it to that line up. I wanted to use the entire colored image so I die cut the image using the second largest AJVD polka Dot rectangle die and then die cut the center using the largest Spellbinders plain oval die. A piece of patterned paper was die cut using the largest polka dot rectangle die as a mat for the water colored piece. After everything was layered I added the die cut oval using foam dimensionals to give it a bit more height. Some clear Wink of Stella was brushed on the pumpkins as well. I have included a cropped image that shows the Wink of Stella.
Thanks for stopping by today... and would love to know what you think!
