An Autumn Hello - Miss Ink Stamps

Hello!  Welcome back!  I have some Miss Ink Autumn goodness for you today!

I started with the Fall Bouquet stamp set!  I stamped it using Versamark onto a panel of watercolor paper and embossed it in Wow Gold Embossing Powder.  I lightly blended on a few Distress Oxide Inks and in broad areas... blue for the sky... yellow over the floral and green at the bottom just to lay a base of color.  Then I colored it in using Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils and a water brush.  After it was dry, I splattered on some water and soaked up the excess droplets with a paper towel.

In between background layers I stamped, cut and colored my images from the Pumpkin Spice Gnomes stamp set.  I also used the birds from the Springtime Banners set!  I thought they went perfectly with this friendly fellow!

Then I layered all of the images over the background trying to be sure some of it showed giving a feel of the pumpkin house being nestled in the leaves and flowers.

Finally I added a sentiment from the Pumpkin Spice sentiment set... I stamped and fussy cut it out for just a little sentiment that wouldn't take up too much space!

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed your visit and that you'll come again soon for more inspiration!
