Pick a Pumpkin in Blue

Pick a Pumpkin in Blue from theartfulinker.com

Oh have I had fun playing today!  I could say, “I am blue”.  But, I’m not — I’m tickled pink with my Pick a Pumpkin in blue.  I love those Hubbard squash that you see that are all blue and bubbly.  They were my inspiration for my not quite Fall pumpkins.

I couldn’t decide on my favorite shade for the base.

So, I made it three times!

Here, I’ve used Pool Party for my card base.

Then, I have a layer of Shimmery White cardstock.

I spritzed it.

Then, I added on some of each of the blue shades.

While the watercolor background was drying, I stamped

and cut images from Pick a Pumpkin.

I’m in love with all of the stems that come in the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits!

They add some light texture and I don’t have to fussy cut!

Finally, it is just a matter of layering all of the bits.

Those  new Mini Dimensionals were perfect behind the pierced pumpkin!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Pick a Pumpkin in blue!

    What did you spritz it with to make it glimmer?? I’m looking for a current substitute to the smooch spritz.

      Emily, thanks for asking. I used Shimmery White cardstock. You can see it HERE It’s got great body for watercolor and the added bonus of all over shimmer!!

    I love this card. Wish I would have seen it earlier. I just made what I consider to be a very boring fall card with the Pick a Pumpkin bunch in fall colors. This one inspires me to try it in my favorite color – PINK and all of its shades.
