Smilin' Jack

This is one of the first cards I have made with the new Autumn Harvest set from the Holiday mini catalog. I've found this to be a fun and versatile set. It is great for cards, scrap booking and fall home decor. I plan to make table decor for Thanksgiving with this set. I've made a couple place cards and napkin rings so far that turned out pretty cute. I share when I complete the set. I like that the jack-o-lantern face is a separate stamp so that you can create all different sort of fall groupings with these stamps.

No special techniques or explanation other than I water colored using my aqua painter and SU! inks. I then stamped over images using the Weathered background stamp inked in Creamy Caramel. I had to photograph this rather than scan it due to the bulkiness of the raffia so the color is a bit off.

Stamps: Autumn Harvest, Weathered background
Card stock: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive & Very Vanilla
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Creamy Caramel, Black Stazon & various others to watercolor.

Have a great day!

I love fall and I LOVE this card! The weathered background just makes it.
