This is what the crop in the field was:
Pumpkins! Ready to be harvested for halloween I assume. Why am I so surprised? They've got to come from somewhere! Anyway, they got me thinking about a wheel called Fall Harvest I've just bought and have been dying to have a play with. Here's the result of that little session:
I'm the first to admit that I'm not the worlds greatest colourer but it's quite hard not to get some kind of decent effect with this wheel. I used markers, a blender pen and my watercolour pencils and just thoroughly enjoyed myself! The letterbox-style layout is very simple but it allows the image to be the focus.
And isn't the image beautiful?! I love the tendrils that give it such movement. If you like colouring images it's well worth a look at the new catalogue as there are lots of new outline stamps this year.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Fall Harvest standard wheel, Easy Events (sentiment)
Ink: Basic Grey
Card stock: Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla
Other: Markers in So Saffron, More Mustard, Peach Parfait, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, Watercolour pencils, blender pen, stamp-a-majig

There are some new cats in our neighbourhood and our cat is beside herself with outrage! She keeps jumping onto the windowsill next to my desk where she can survey her domain. From there she visibly swells with indignation, lashes her tail and complains to anyone who will listen - ie me! It's like having an grumpy old lady in the room!
Thank you for spending time with me today. Do leave me a comment if you have a minute - I always love hearing from you. I'll be back again tomorrow with a quick Christmas card using the new Petite Pennants punch.
Hope to see you then,
