Happy Harvest 22

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 17, 2016 @ 9:48 PM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope you're having a great weekend! Today I have a couple autumn inspired projects to share, both featuring pumpkins. First up is a greeting card showcasing an embossed pumpkin image from one of my all time favorite PTI fall themed stamp sets: Fall Elegance:
I stamped the sentiment using a more than 12 year old SU ink pad which still works like new and has never been reinked. 
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current MOJO Monday sketch challenge:

It's Day 16 of 30 in 30:
I was in the mood to paint a whitish pumpkin with lots of texture on an 8" x 8" canvas panel:
I'm really enjoying the painting process learning how to vary my brushstrokes while incorporating the use of a palette knife:


I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

Both are fantastic! I LOVE your painting! Hows you sister? I think about you a lot :-)

That is one amazing ink pad - to stay moist enough to use after 12 years. Your card is beautiful. I especially like that you didn't use all fall colors. Your painting looks fantastic, too! That pumpkin has such dimension - it looks positively plump!!

Christine L said...

A lovely card and a wonderful painting Mona... I've never seen a white pumpkin - but that looks so realistic!

And well done on your inkpad - I have some equally as old - and they go on and on!

You are such a talent!!! I love the non-traditional look of your pumpkin card! The soft lavendar is beautiful and the embossing on the pumpkin makes me want to run my fingers over it! Your painting is gorgeous! LOVE the texture and color!
