Pumpkin Inspiration




This is my first time playing in the Shabby Tea Room challenges. For week #31, we were to be inspired by this seasonal pumpkin photo. I kept my layout very simple and went back to the first Nestie shape...often neglected now that so many new shapes have been made. I tried to capture the shades of color with Copics that were so evident in the pumpkins in the photo. I looped some twine rather than add ribbon, giving it more of a country feel.

PAPER: Autumn Splendor (Making Memories), White
INK: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink (used in sponging)
