Inkspirational Thanks!

Hello and Welcome to the Inkspirational Green and Orange challenge!
I was thrilled and honoured when asked to be the guest designer for this wonderful challenge and here is the card that I came up with!


I thought I had better do some inking...
Some water colouring, some smooshing and some leaf splattering and staggering were my technique.  My "pumpkins" are actually hot air balloon dies that I turned upside down and added some linen twine around the "stems"!  I hope that you will be able to join in at the gallery this time around!  Challenges run for two weeks!

  1. I just love the organic feel of this card - so many fabulous techniques and yet it looks so natural. Clustering the leaves and pumpkins on one side gives great impact, as does the addition of black. What a beautiful card! Thank you so much for being GD at Inkspirational.
