Pumpkin Patch Wonder

Since I grew up with "Its the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", pumpkin patches have a certain mystique to me.  Potential magic?  Perhaps.  Combine this with a misty autumn dusk and a little imagination and the pumpkin patch seems to sparkle. (though here in Michigan, that could be the frost)

I think this little child, "Little Pumpkin Witch" from A Day For Daisies, expects something magical to happen.
To make the wispy clouds, I first colored the background, then took a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol and dabbed it where I wanted the clouds.  If a cloud got out of hand, I would just let it dry, then color over it, then dab the cotton swab again over the area.

Card Details:

  • Stamp: "Little Pumpkin Witch" from A Day For Daisies;
  • Coloring Medium: Copic markers;
  • Accessories: Tim Holtz Dies: Brackets, Typeset and Autumn Gatherings; Foam tape; Stickles; Glossy Medium;

You will want to check out the "A Day For Daisies" Blog.  Today will begin the challenge to make a Halloween project.

More incredible inspiration is available on the blogs of my fellow ADFD Design Team Members:
