Thanksgiving Whimsy

Melanie issued a challenge in the Gina K forums to make a card using at least three Gina K stamp sets. I love combining stamps sets, so this was a fun challenge for me.

The pumpkin from Cammie's latest set, Whimsical Autumn, was stamped on white card stock and colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and Marvy markers. Then I embossed the image and sponged the background with So Saffron, Creamy Caramel and Pumpkin Pie inks.

I also stamped the leaves from Autumn Leaves and the fern from Botanical Dreams and colored those with Koh-i-noor pencils.

The larger panel was sponged with So Saffron, Creamy Caramel and Pumpkin Pie, then stamped with another stamp from Botanical Dreams, using Creamy Caramel ink. The sentiment is from So Grateful and the card base is Really Rust.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a fun weekend!
