CASual Fridays - Fall Fun

I know, I know but I couldn't help myself.
I seemed to be on a bit of a roll today so I just haven't stopped. And, considering it is Spring here I am actually loving these "Autumn" challenges.
I'm very lucky where I live as we only really get about 6 weeks of winter per year. Autumn isn't really a season you see in the northern parts of Australia. When I lived in the southern part of the country, the change of season into Autumn was just amazing. I do miss that but not the cold lol. We really only get Spring and Summer here.
I wanted to enter CASual Fridays challenge so this is what I came up with -

I have used my new set from Inspired by Stamping. I have stamped onto Watercolour paper. Masking the first pumpkin with a post-it note, I then stamped the other two. Using my Stampin' Markers (So Saffron, More Mustard & Pumpkin Pie) and a blender pen I have coloured pretty 'hard' onto the paper to give the pumpkins that roughish look. I then used Glossy Accents all over them to give them a bit of shine. I cut them out then popped them up onto foam squares. The autumn leaves are also on foam squares. The cardstock I have used are Basic Black and Very Vanilla. The sentiment is from my Loads of Love Accessory set.


Thanks for looking xx
