Patchwork Pumpkin

One of my favorite things about Serendipity Stamps is how wonderful they are to color. They lend themselves well to watercolors, Copic Markers, reinkers, etc. but this one just cried out to be paper pieced. The name of the stamp is "Quilted Pumpkin" and I made a patchwork out of My Mind's Eye's patterned papers. I just love the detail in this stamp.

The sketch today is from 2 Sketches 4 You. They offer really creative sketches every Monday. You can check it out here.

I must really be ready for fall. I can't seem to stop making cards with deep Autumn colors and themes. They are definitely my favorite!

Carry on with your weekend. Have a wonderful one!






It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye

Stamps: Serendipity Stamps

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Dimensionals, Ribbon, twine
