Impression Obsession Pumpkins for HSSIC325

I saw this Impression Obsession sentiment in their stamp set called "Pumpkin Kisses" and I knew I had to make a card with it! It's so true - October is the most beautiful month. We spent the weekend camping with friends in our RV at the local State Park. Just a beautiful weekend.
The challenge was an inspiration picture:
I choose the black & white gingham and the pumpkins to create the card. I started with Arteza 140 lb. watercolor paper and Arteza Watercolor Markers. I just purchased their large set of 96 and wanted to play with the colors. It always takes a while to learn how to use a new medium and I was happy with the results!
I stamped the sentiment with's Black Hybrid Ink several times using my MISTI. For watercolor paper, a stamp positioner is really critical. I used Lawn Fawn's Just Stitching Double Rectangles for the stitched images along the edge of the paper. These are fun - they just impress the stitch image, they don't cut the paper.

The background is Right at Home's "Gingham Background" stamped with the Black Hybrid Ink onto My Favorite Things Whip Cream card stock. I cut it at an angle and popped up with 3M Foam Tape. The card base is also from My Favorite Things  - Tango Orange cardstock.

I used sequins from Trinity Stamps which were a gift with purchase. They are a pretty iridescent orange.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and all products mentioned are shown below.

Happy October!
