Etsy Update & PUMPKINS!

Pretty blah title, I know.  Pretty much says it like it is, lol.
*I actually wrote this yesterday*

FIRST - I've spent allllll morning (and into the afternoon) updating my Etsy store, so it'd be great if you make it worth all that work and go check it out. lol! :)  Find something you'd like?  Go it! ;-)

MY ETSY SHOP (craftincrystal)

NOW...for the pumpkins.

I know I've mentioned before that I *heart* watercoloring, but can I just say it again? ;-)  I LOVE WATERCOLORING! :)

Even more so when I use our watercolor paper. (sigh) it.

I stamped the front pumpkin, then masked, then stamped the remaining pumpkins, gourd, and leaves.  Then...I got out my trusty aquapainter and ink pad lids and set to work!  The leaves on top of the pumpkins are cut out and I added a linen thread bow, then stamped the sentiment from Grateful Greetings.  Added the layers, and...Voila!

Okay, so this has taken me all day to get to (multiple interruptions)...but it's finally ready to post. Oops, I guess that means this is Saturday's post instead of Friday, lol!.

Well, what do you think?
