IO Challenge- Harvest Treats (Fruits/Veggies/Pumpkins)
Greetings friends. Today's challenge is all about the harvest....lots of fruits and vegetables. For those of you who know me, you know I had to do pumpkins. I also had to add a punny sentiment. That's just the way I roll.
To make the card, I first started by making my frame. I painted some 140lb watercolor paper with various autumnal colors of watercolor paint. I spritzed it to let the colors blend and then let the paper dry. Once dry, I cut out my frame using the Large Frame die.
For my gourd truck, I cut out the truck from light yellow cardstock and then deepened the yellow on the fenders using a Copic marker. I made sure to sponge a lot of Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink onto the truck to make it look like it was on a farm. I then loaded the truck with some pumpkins and added my sentiment.
The punny sentiment comes from a clear set that has other puns such as:
Life is Gourd
Oh Gourd Gracious
I can't tell you how happy this set makes me! Just FYI...the stamp set comes with a truck set. I decided to use a die instead so that I could load it with pumpkins, but you could just as easily use the truck in the set.
Here is a close up of the truck:
