Gourds, Squash, Pumpkins
The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge this week is GORGEOUS GOURDS. I thought I had seen a blue pumpkin once or twice but decided to check it out. I found out that it is really a Jarrahdale squash or an Australian Blue Pumpkin.
Look at this gorgeous photo Curtain Call gave for inspiration:
I noticed the pillow in the background with the gold, brown, and blue and decided I would paper piece my largest pumpkin. The others are colored with Copics.
I stamped my large pumpkin, then masked it and stamped the leaves going up my card. The other two pumpkins were stamped and cut out so I just stamped part of the leaves there from the same stamp, then popped up my pumpkins.
I'm also entering the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Use a rubber or clear stamp
This is also another card for the Paper Snippet's Playground #94--I used snippets to paper piece my large pumpkin and snippets also on the small pumpkins.
The cue word this week at CAS-ology is PUMPKIN so I'm entering my card there.
