Here in the UK, Autumn is playing its usual tricks on us with chilly rainy days one moment and warm sunny ones the next. I love Autumn and wish we celebrated it more, just as they do across the pond.
Today, I have another postcard to share with you, similar, but different, to yesterday’s:
I am sharing this over at City Crafter Challenge Blog for their leaves themed challenge. This is a different take on a pumpkin patch. You don’t see the white pumpkins so much and I absolutely love them. To create mine I used my Bo Bunny stamp and some Orange Blossom Archival ink on cream card and paper pieced it.
The background was created using distress inks – Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and a touch of Mowed Lawn. Once all the inks were applied I spritzed on some water to create the mottled effect. I used Lavinia’s vine stamp and some green Archval ink for the leaves and then couldn’t resist adding the little bees.
I felt I wanted to add some words or something else to complete the design, I tried some stars but they were not the answer. I became so worried about mucking it up that, in the end, I decided to leave well alone. I’ll maybe do another take on this and see what evolves.
Thanks for buzzing by.
