Just Us Girls #650 - Color Week

 Hello friends!  It's Color Week at Just Us Girls and Bobby has chosen a very pretty fall color combo.

I went through my fall stamps and I came across this pumpkin that I've always loved from Honey Bee.  I stamped it in three shades of orange with three different stamps.  It looked too white, so I shaded it with some light orange ink.  The middle piece was die cut three times and stacked for dimension.  I stamped the stem, leaves (I put too much shimmer on the large leaf), and twigs and added some crystals down the middle piece.  I chose a weave stencil for the background and brown ink.  It looks too busy, but I had to live with it.  I chose a simple sentiment.

You can see more from the JUGs design team and our September guest on the JUGs blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Patchwork Pumpkin (Honey Bee), Harvest Pumpkin (The Ton)
Paper:  White
Ink:  Apricot, clementine, persimmon, key lime, gathered twigs, frayed burlap
Accessories:  Patchwork Pumpkin dies (HB), weave stencil (MFT), crystals

Your bold pumpkin looks very plumptious, is that even a word LOL! The basket weave stencil works well with your theme. I have some butternut squashes growing in the garden, hoping they ripen well too! :)

I like the mix of patterns of the pumpkin paired with the background. I do like it but would like to see it on a dark solid background. Maybe time for you to make card two. LOL
