New Design Team!

I have been a fan of the Happy Little Stampers Challenges for a long time. When I saw they were looking for Design Team members I had to apply to the Stencil Team and they accepted me!
Anything Goes With a Stencil Challenge, which is my favorite, for I have so many ideas and want to use all the products I have in my stash! As you may or may not know, I am also on the Design Team for A Colorful Life Designs, a small business, woman owned stencil company located in Texas. Perfect match!
If you are looking for a good selection of stencils, you can't go wrong with:
But let's get onto my card for my first Design Team submittal! I used 3 stencils from a Colorful Life Design and layered them:
Marvelous Masks Pumpkin Stencil is a set of 4 pumpkins, both positive and negative - which I absolutely love!
I used the largest pumpkin (upper left hand image) and used a little Pixie Spray on it. I placed it on my card front panel and pressed it down with my Tim Holtz's brayer. Next, I placed the Maples Leaves Stencil over the card front, right over the pumpkin mask.
Then I just ink blended with Ranger's Distress Ink in Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade and  Carved Pumpkin. Then I gently removed both stencils and used the curve of one of the Marvelous Mask Pumpkin Stencil to make the hill in the open pumpkin space. I left it in place and then used the Cloud Edger Stencil with Ranger's Distress Ink Tumbled Glass.
Sounds complicated, but it's really about layering and making sure you have what you don't want overlapped covered up:

These stencils set the scene for the cute cute images from My Favorite Things BB Harvest Mouse:
I stamped them on Ranger's Tim Holtz's Watercolor Paper and water colored with the Distress Inks smooshed onto a palette. I don't have the coordinating dies, so I cut them with my Brother Scan 'n Cut. I did still have to fussy cuts parts that I didn't like how they were cut. You can see I have a border on one but not the other.
