Just Us Girls #208 - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hi all!  We have a photo inspiration challenge this week over at Just Us GirlsElise is our hostess and she chose these four fabulous pictures.  Elise is definitely a cowgirl, can you tell?

I picked out the pumpkins in the bottom two pictures and went in search of some pumpkin stamps in my stash of fall stamps.  I found this one from Our Daily Bread which has a die to match.  I stamped it in Jet Black Archival ink onto watercolor paper then die cut it.  I've had distress markers for quite a while, but haven't used them yet.  What was I waiting for?  They are so fun to use with water on watercolor paper!   I still have some practicing to do, but I like the outcome.  My leaves look a little muddy.  I added some orange to the green and I should have added more green to brighten them up.  I also added some Wink of Stella shimmer to the pumpkin.

I'm entering this into the Case Study challenge.  I used the sketch as my inspiration.

I'm also entering this into the Cas-ual Fridays challenge to use fall colors and a leaf.

You can see more inspiration from the JUGs team at these blogs.
We are also bidding a fond farewell to two of our JUGs design team members:  Elise and Tangii.  Elise is moving on to bigger and better things and needs time to do just that.  We will miss her bubbly personality and comments.  Tangii is also moving on and will be sorely missed by all, especially me!  We have been on three design teams together for quite some time and have become friends.  Best wishes to Tangii and Elise!  You were both such an asset to this team!
Check out the JUGs blog on Tuesday, October 1st to see who the new members to our DT will be!
